A socially responsive building design should be facilitated by using exterior and Interior architectural event sequences and coordinated space relationships. People are inherently by nature, social creatures, and positive interaction between them is essential. Positive interaction is characterized by intimate conversation between the visitors and participation in the activities that the facility has to offer. If people are to want to participate in social events, the structure must do two important things: get the people into the building, and keep them there The building must be both visually stimulating and physically comfortable. This will make social interaction among the visitors easy to accomplish. Since the users of the building are the ultimate judges of the success or failure of the building design, the architect must keep the people's needs and wants in mind. The proposed facility type, whose main purpose is to promote social interaction among adults, is a modern night club The two main social activities will be drinking and dancing. Live musical entertainment, in the form of concerts. will be incorporated as scheduled events into the usual mix of dance music controlled by a disc jockey. Modern Top-40 dance will be the main music played, although the occasional 'classic' dance song will by interspersed during the evenings The site location will be inside Lubbock's Depot District, at the corner of Buddy Holly Ave. and 19th Street south of the Depot Beer Garden. This site is a commercial area that has numerous single and multi-story buildings. Interstate 27 will be visible from the site. Many other entertainment located in this area, will also be within easy walking distance.
