Marinetti Futurist Arts Institute
- Bowling Green State University
- ARCH 322, 2007
- Instructors: Stan Guidera, Jon Stevens
Futurist movements promoted social interaction â€“ fusing connections between humans and unifying society. Their methodology for conveying their agenda was through performance, communication, and gathering.
The site of the Marinetti Futurist institute exists on the boundary of the urban fabric of Chicago, and the parks and lake to the east.
A series of stages, circulation elements, and public spaces provide a platform for gathering and social interaction within the Futurist institute.
To promote gathering and interaction, the spaces wrap around a central atrium. The building has its public functions â€“ the museum, library, and theater zoned into the front half, intertwining the activity of michigan avenue with the activity of the building.
