Facility Type The proposed vehicle for this thesis is a Restaurant and Public Market that will be used as a public junction or gathering place. It will be an expression of connection by being a multi-purpose facility that will reach outward to surrounding built environment. It will be shaped by looking to existing compositions and by re-using materials from existing industrial buildings from a nearby East district that will tie the past and future together. Also proposed are sequences of architecturally landscaped paths connecting the site to the surrounding area. This project act as a connection within an isolated urban area. It will initiate commercial growth as well as a sense of place and community within a dormant area of mid-town Lubbock, while acting as a landmark that will tie users to a place. It will also address aspects of organic architectural design methods, by adaptive re-use, by using existing materials, and passive climactic design techniques. This project will act as a bridge between person and place.
