DISSOLUTION OF THE SOVEREIGN
Sited in between the Freedom Tower and St. Paul's Chapel, in Lower Manhattan. Project comes out of an analysis of the historical conditions of the site, most notably the historic Washington Market sited on the same block as the Freedom Tower. In an effort to revive this commercial condition and recognize the tragedies of the site itself, the building extends the ground of St. Paul's Chapel, projecting out towards the Freedom Tower and the 9/11 memorial. Programmatically, the project has three main elements: low-income housing, a non-denominational church, and an open-air market on its ground floor.
