Reinventing & Reusing Functionality


Could abandon structures be a local constructive resource in an urban setting?

Reinventing & Reusing Functionality


Could abandon structures be a local constructive resource in an urban setting?
The Re-envision of Costco wholesales supermarket in Long Island City, Queens and its potential programs for the future.

Type of project
  • Systemic changes

The idea of reusing and recycling is directly related to human behaviours and in order to influence us to be exciting on revalue the waste. Buildings serve purposes related directly to human's need, desire but in today's fast pacing world, our routine keeps changing in a constant. In the country like the US, we shifted so much to online purchasing. A building which hosts programs like wholesales supermarket could potentially got shut down in the future. Then what would be the future possibility of this structure? The site of Costco wholesales in Long Island City is very odd in the sense that this supermarket doesn’t relate to anything surrounding it. Its environment is very dedicated to the public where there are two parks on the sides (Rainey Park and Socrates Sculpture park), Noguchi Museum behind it, and the East River in front of it. Could a perfect site for the city as a wholesales supermarket transform to a public program like a waste fabricating center?
