Riverwalk Activity Center

Montgomery, AL | bARCH studio

Sited at the end of the current riverwalk, this project was envisioned as a private center to support the outdoor activities of the community. Inspiration came from aquatic vessels, and can be seen in the sail-like forms, which rise up in vertical bands meeting at the top of an arch.

Each of these forms helps organize different programmatic elements, such as a fitness center, restaurant, and exhibition space. These rest atop a plinth, helping separate public and private functions, while maintaining circulation around the riverwalk.
