Student Architecture Project (fourth year) for a wellness center in Midtown, Oklahoma City. My project was inspired by bamboo and the physical metaphor of the word well as an interjection.

    a community center focusing on all kinds of health, located in midtown oklahoma city

    --an area looking to reinforce a pedestrian lifestyle-- has a strong working relationship

    with st. anthonys hospital.

    bamboo is a catalyst for sustainable design, used to filter sunlight, as a living wall, inte-

    rior finishes, spatial partitions, and structural inspiration.

    well has multiple meanings besides that of an overall goodness. the word is also an

    interjection: a grammatical tool used to signify change is about to take place.

    the midtown wellness center is a physical interpretation of an interjection:

    views and paths create a sense of progression, foster individual improve -

    ment, and promote community-wide change.

    bamboo screens in the fitness areas provide private workout spaces for the

    self-conscious, while larger open areas encourage social interaction. the north-

    ern point of the site is occupied by a shaded outdoor lobby and waiting area that encour-

    ages community interaction. the eastern triangle of the site features open courts, recycled

    rubber porous paved overflow parking, and bamboo landscaping. a variety of outdoor

    spaces within the building highlight an environmentally aware architecture.
