This studio will begin by researching the historical development of Irish-American culture in South Buffalo and the relationship to contemporary notions of cultural center. In addition, the initial research will explore the possibility of incorporating the display of culturally significant objects. There will be two major design assignments throughout the course of the semester; the development of a master plan for the proposed Buffalo Fenians Gaelic Football Park and the design of a Community/Cultural Center for the adjacent South Buffalo Community. This studio will explore the design of a Community/Cultural Center as a means to investigate the incorporation of various technologies into the comprehensive design of a building.  The final product of this studio will be the comprehensive design of a building which incorporates building service systems, structural systems, and life-safety systems.
