Fulfillment Center: The Silo Project: A Capitalist Museum
Advanced Studio II
Studio Critic: Greg Lynn with Nathan Hume
The silo, in this project, is renewed to adjust to today’s dynamic fulfillment typology and further formally manipulated to encourage alternative spatial experiences that reimagine the Silo Cloud as a public viewing space and outdoor market. By collapsing the familiar form of a silo into itself and manipulating the figure, the compound figure creates a satisfyingly vague relationship between the original familiar form and the ambivalent larger whole. The two characters—the strange familiar form on the exterior, and the technical machine character on the interior—work together to enhance the experience of the visitor making the machine an observational event for the city as the machine is working to feed it.
