Community Recreation //
This project, located at the waters edge of the Hillsborough River, focuses on the connection between downtown Tampa, surrounding neighborhoods, and the river’s edge. The entire project is underground and creates a berm which doubles as a green roofing system and a public park containing 6 different pool variations. This is a place where people can not only park and spend the entire day, but also visit downtown and its surrounding context as a result of its connection to the Tampa Bay River Walk.
