Arch 574: The Internet Archive
Graduate Design Studio
T.F. Tierney, Fall 2018
The “Internet Collectives” aims to revolutionize the paradigm of working by establishing a co-working community within an internet archive in Toronto, ON. There is a global rising trend in start-up and freelancing, which can be a great opportunity for Toronto to activate its waterfront with more economical growth. The abundant resources from the internet archive can be great assets for all the freelancers and entrepreneurs around Toronto.
Home is the ideal working environment for freelancers. By introducing the idea of a “home” into a public building and organizing its programs into five “rooms” (living room, bedroom, kitchen, dining room, garage), the space now has a new relationship with its users.
