Dancing Machine

Situated adjacent to the Highline, the design proposes to extend the Highline’s pedestrian platform into the interior of the main volume. This extension creates an access to the highline from 13th st. and programmatically organizes the main space into rehearsal and performance spaces. The walkway fuses the intended dance studio users with the unexpected passerby audience. As such, this collision of movements itself becomes a different type of ‘dance performance’ adjacent to the rehearsal and performance spaces.
