The Carrie Furnaces project is a semester long project I completed both individually and with my fellow environments design peers. The overall goal of the project is to design Carrie Furnaces, an old steel mill now run by a historic heritage non-profit organization, as an industrial park that will allow for more public access and freedom. Currently the site is very closed off from the community; there is one main access point that is not apparent and the site is mostly comprised of guided tours during the day and local events on the weekends. Our job as a class was to propose a plan for the site that would make Carrie more accessible to the public and illustrate a clear vision for the site in terms of its function, layout, relation to the community, and overall design. The project is split into four main sections over the course of the semester with visits to the site interspersed throughout; initial research, team charrettes, the group site plan and thesis, and individual project development.
