Soccer in the streets - tiny classroom  

Atlanta, GA  

The mission of Soccer in the Streets is aimed at being an organization dedicated to the personal growth and development of underprivileged children throughout the city of Atlanta, with the goal of providing well-structured athletics and academic assistance for those involved in the program.  As the organization continues to expand and strengthen its roles throughout the city, the necessity for innovative, efficient, and flexible learning space has become a reality.  The proposed solutions were all generated around the ideas of community, teamwork, personal growth, and enjoyment, as a way to provide a temporary structure located at MARTA’ s Five Points station and servicing the athletic and academic goals of Soccer in the Streets.  BLUR Workshop, in collaboration with Smith Dalia, and Pattern R+D, generated multiple concepts in order to provide a range of classroom solutions.

COMBINATION PLAY- Option 1

The proposal utilizes independent prefabricated modules, which have been personalized to specific functional activities, that can be combined to test different programmatic and environmental ideas.  These modules are intended to allow for unique configurations that are able to respond to differing sites as Soccer in the Streets continues to expand its efforts in  MARTA stations throughout the city.  Sustainable design approaches targeting a Net-Zero design solution, have been explored through the use of photo-voltaic panels, rain water collection and management, passive solar shading, and natural daylighting.
