A school project in which we had to redesign a small triangle shape park near Harvard Square in Cambridge. I inspired myself from the Great Mosque of Samarra in Iraq, one of the oldest Islamic architecture city and buildings still standing. Whilst most of it has been destroyed, the minaret is shaped as a spiral which we can take to go at the top and enjoy the view. I incorporated the design into two different circular benches, in the small park. I wanted people from both streets to feel welcome, which is why both are orientated towards them. I also noticed when visiting the site that many students were in the area because of Harvard campus nearby, which is why I added a bike storage. My project is based on creating an environment where people are welcome to leave their bikes when entering a cafe or just sit down for a while in a 'bubble', interpreted by the benches and the curvy roof.
