On behalf of Friendship Development Associates (FDA) as a key factor in revitalizing the community program, the Loft Glass is a new mixed-use building consisting of 3,600 square meters of work space for artists, a condominium of 18 lofts, shops and restaurants, the offices of the FDA and a community space. Located in the heart of “Pennsylvania Avenue Arts District, the Loft Glass is the result of a process-oriented planning and active community participation in project development through the neighborhood residents, artists and companies.
The driving force behind the architecture of the lofts have been an incomplete picture. Rather than see architecture as an absolute presence and finally, the Loft Glass is deliberately incomplete. Users and the inevitability of the passage of time becomes essential force in training, and thus completes the architecture. Not literally, physically or incomplete, the Loft Glass is an incomplete work, allowing the change as an essential contributor to the overall design.
At the core of the incomplete, the joint is a place for human action in which: the change occurs, the user expected, the unexpected meeting, where you can interpret and fill the gap. The architecture invites interactivity, assuming incomplete – to build on its users different experiences and connections in the field of intellectual, physical and emotional. The architecture of the application users to have an open mind and a full commitment to his senses and mind. The Glass Loft space is imperfect and incomplete – waiting to be transformed by the people who live and use it.
