My project centers around the idea of the continuous loop, where circulation is the main way of guiding the program. As visitors circulate throughout the building, they flow through the different programmatic elements, while getting an experience of the ramps and surrounding area. The addition element to the program is the theater spaces, one being on the exterior of the building facing the parking garage, to act as a new take on the drive in theater and bring in the surrounding buildings. The interior theater acts as a central core, to engage visitors and add to the experience of the ramp. The exciting interior spaces are designed to bring non-gym goers to the exercise world. By including an interesting circulation path, the visitors get a continuous inside/outside experience.
