Begotten Boathouse

The boathouse proposal designed by Daniel Cartagena and Kristen Bauer is sited in Devil's Spuyten, Bronx in NYC.  The boathouse is meant to serve Columbia's crew team and also be able to be a community space where people can come to row, or just host events.  The proposal takes the programs and distributes them into two volumes that are connected by a bridge on the second floor.  The circulation then creates a loop that connects you from the ground level where the boats are kept up to the second level where the crew can practice shower or talk to their coaches in private offices.  The volumes share a view of the river and a large platform that allows for both seating for watching races as well as stairs to descend to the boat shed.
