A 10 acre pocket park located along the Huron River in Ypsilanti, MI is underutilized and in need of a face lift to attract users. This project explores creative processes that can lead to conceptual design generation of spaces, such as Peninsular Park. Starting with research and analysis of the area, I then selected two different sources of site inspiration to draw from: trees and graffiti, both of which dominated the landscape. I use different forms of media (2D collage and 3D clay modeling) to initially explore possibilities for the park, then merge the two sources of inspiration into one conceptual axonometric plan that leads to a more detailed model and set of perspectives showing what the park could look and feel like.
