Hybrid Tower | Jon Martin

Jon Martin proposed this Hybrid Tower, It was a retail/office hybrid tower study, for reintroducing urban retail to downtown Kansas City. The combination of diverse typologies allowed for a new formal and typological system to develop. The retail center is a bridge allowing the building to step over physical land barriers such as railways and highways that have cutoff traffic and have created a devolving sector of downtown. The structure from the bridge draws support from the twisting towers which have reinforced spines and are connected through a web of structural membrane.
