A multi-modal transportation center for the city of Houston
Reyes, Jose R.
When one observes the properties of transportation elements the one characteristic that is obvious is that of movement. The project submitted within these pages proposes to create an architecture that reflects these dynamic properties of motion and their intersection with one another. This representation of motion and intersection will be analyzed metaphorically, and then created by tracing those paths and collisions in form. The main goal of this facility is to encourage a society dependant on their private vehicles to use public transportation. The word "public" should not be seen negatively; in this project the architecture must celebrate the public atmosphere The principles of l<inetic energy, potential energy, and collision will be harnessed to advertise the efficiency and leisure of a proposed public transportation networic in Houston, Texas. Therefore, the architecture becomes the advertisement, the element of persuasion in concept, function, and form.
