|Abstract:||The New York urbanism museum is located at the corner between 50th street and Rockefeller plaza, and it is to sit on the site of “Anthropologie (a recently developed modern high-end women department store)”. New York withholds several famous landmarks including Rockefeller Centre, GE building, Statue Of Liberty, Empire State Building, Twin Tower...etc. For being one of the most prestigious city in the world, its historical significance should be celebrated as well as its future development, therefore I decided to design an urbanism museum and place it in the middle of one of the most high densely populated block in New York, so the wider the population can get the chance to know their city. Urbanism museum is designed to showcase the past, presence and the future. The theme of the exterior design is “grid“ to reflect the modern New York City, as the buildings in the city vary in heights instead of its appearance, and the strict ruled pattern of the streets. Most importantly, this is designed as a sustainable architecture, in which it uses recyclable built materials, renewable energy and recycle rainwater system, aiming to raise awareness regarding to environmental issues in the wide public.|
