    Proposed TCF Bank Stadium South PlazaInspired by the qualities of tightly compressed space between the elliptical TCF Bank Stadium and the rectilinear University Office Plaza, this proposal uses a simple parti to develop an architectural solution for a new University of Minnesota Alternative Transportation Hub and Hostel Facility.

    Rather than limiting the development of the site to a singular building, this proposal extends beyond the site boundaries to include a new plaza south of TCF Bank Stadium. Using the relationship between the stadium and the office building, tangential lines radiate o� the brick walls of the stadium to create a patterned landscape which invites movement from the eastern-most edge of the campus towards the campus center. In some areas, these lines extend through the building site and serve as baselines for the formal development of the transportation hub and hostel facility. In balancing the significance of what it means to be mobile, and what it means to be connected, this plaza o�ers another means for efficient movement around campus.

    Similarly, the transportation hub is designed to separate disparate forms of transportation. Primarily, bike lanes and pedestrian walkways eschew the presence of the busy streets and light rail line by ramping over these corridors. This allows the alternate pedestrian means of transportation to be safe and efficient.

    This proposal also recognizes the importance of light rail transit on site and adds alternative station canopies to the already complex building program.

    Finally, the proposed alternative transportation hub and hostel building responds to the addition of the new plaza by elevating the hostel units to a second level where views to the plaza and the stadium can be maintained. These views, overlooking the light rail station and bus transit lines remind and inspire patrons of the hostel the value of being mobile, the value of being connected, and the value that alternative means of transportation can bring to our daily lives.

    The Library Park site offers a great opportunity for enhancing the public realm on the North side of downtown Minneapolis. The goals of the design for Library Park included; creation of a publicly accessible green space, fitting in with the surrounding context, use of durable and sustainable materials and a design that evokes monumentality.

    The adjacency to the Minneapolis Public Library lends itself well to extending the public functions into the park. To reinforce the axial gesture of the library, the design continues the geometry across Nicollet Mall into Library Park. Along Nicollet Mall, there is a large outdoor plaza for performances, public speaking, markets and splash pad. The ground plane shifts up and become seating for outdoor gathering and pushes the green space above programmed space. Public functions; such as, a bike rental hub, public restrooms and toilets, a café and small gathering spaces are located below a large recreational park. The large indoor gathering space for year-round activities is created by recessing the seating down below grade and flipping the roof up. Thick local stone walls extend from below grade and rise to create a defined and monumental form.

    Library Park encourages social interaction from multiple types of interior to exterior activities for year-round use. The durable use of materials and sustainable features promotes longevity over time. This monument is a hub for social interaction and s great place for the Common Good.
