People’s Pool

Academic | MIT, Instructor Mariana Ibanez, Kyle Coburn, and Max Kuo, 2020 
In Collaboration with Aleksy Dojnow, Yoonjae Oh. All materials presented here are results of teamwork.

This is a fictional proposal for a  one-week competition of a public pool in Brooklyn, one that incorporates multiple programmes such as swimming pools, playgrounds, cycle paths, running tracks, rock climbing walls, basketball courts, etc. Our team reflects on the current urban crisis, such as suffocating lack of space, surging traffic jam, the conflict between existing city fabric and new construction, potential flooding due to climate change; and undertook a sarcastic approach of imagining a futuristic city.
