COCA Parking Garage is designed to become the urban beacon between Delmar and Washington Avenue that connects urban and visual corridors to create public awareness to the new performance arts campus. The parking garage is developed as an extension of the streetscape with programmatic volumes inserted to create hybrid events of the performance school, public parking facilities and a café. The design strategy is to expand the elevated and layered grounds that loops up through street like events and green spaces that engage new forms of urban experiences. This infrastructural facilities is the architecture that blends urbanism and landscape into a new forms of neighborhood platform that brings the public with the institution.
