    Project Team: Samuel Williams and Sami Gerwick
  • A place of ingress relates to a hotel's beginning of program. Inserting the activity of 55th and Broadway directly into the ingress of a hotel enables the public space to create a synapse between street jargon and gathering. Moreover, the hotel's architectural purpose is to communicate the same activity as Broadway establishing a large space to bring the people of Manhattan together. 
  • A sociological section of the hotel calls for multiple approaches and layers to successfully communicate to all the constituent parts that make up the program. How one views the city from the interior is secondary to understanding the city experience with the hotel. Thus, it involves knowing how the individual perceives a hotel before stepping foot in the lobby, or entering their rooms.

  • The Paradox if the hotel exists in buildings whose sole purpose is to enable its inhabitants to isolate themselves. The hierarchy of spaces through a procession of experiences enables individuals to network even before reaching their room. This is achieved through the use of "pods" that act as common spaces between a localization of rooms within the building.
