This project is a proposal entry to the 2016 AEI Student Design Competition in the Structural Category. The competition challenge for the structural team is a 17-story multi-use, high-rise building on 888 Boylston Street, Boston. The design of composite columns integrated with a Bubbledeck system allowed a smaller structural footprint while still keeping its load bearing strength. As a team we strived for an innovative, resilient and sustainable structural system. In addition to the structural design each of us contributed efforts to other areas of the project, such as: daylight harvesting, exterior lighting, public safety and resiliency of the submittal.
