Urban Boite

Designer: Amanda Thomas
Degree: B. Architecture
School: Carleton University
Year: 2012
Location of Project: Besser Street and Rideau Street
Project Status: Unbuilt

The concept for the design is the cardboard box and how it can be unfolded and configured into a new composition. The project features two buildings: Boite Rideau and Boite Besserer. Both buildings interact with a public, outdoor art exhibition space, called the art walk, which runs between both buildings, creating an intellectually stimulating throughway.
