Weaving Culture

Queens, NY, is one of the most diverse places in the world. Through our research on demographics and people’s choice of public transportation, we found that the area along the 7 line is the most energetic and dynamic place for heterogeneity because different ethnicities live along the 7 line and use the 7 line to commute. We also found a park system with World Fair History extended from the south to the north. We identified them as Culture Production and Culture Representation. Our Site is right at the intersection of the two systems, so we decide on our topic as the Weaving Culture. We learned from current typologies and recomposed our new urban fabric to achieve the new featured weaving system.
