dc.description.abstract Most nightclubs are very seldom thought of through architectural de-sign in means of progression of space, exterior applications, flexibility, and other sensory issues. By creating a new nightclub identity through architectural expression, progression of space, and flexibility, one can engage in a multitude of experiences that amplify the senses and create memories that will last a lifetime.The design project is in Dark of Night: a series of interconnected night-club venues and Light of Day: a series of flexible spaces open for concerts, fashion shows, auto shows, product launches, filming and other forms of entertainment. The driving portion of my design is the series of nightclub venues. Entry and progression were one of the most important issues in understanding the senses and creating new experiences that allow users to be given a choice as to what path or journey they would lice to take to particular clubs. Architectural elements allow club goers to receive samplings of views, sounds, and feelings before ever entering the clubs. However, views are limited and sporadic to gain ones curiosity and draw them into the site. The building, conceptually is a new industrial style with the merging of technology, lighting, and fashion.The site is located in downtown Indianapolis, IN near 3 other existing clubs and Conseco Fieldhouse to take advantage of the entertainment district. There are four clubs located on-site with one club taking over a portion of an existing building that had an opened up structure to the south end of the building. Site access and viewlines are acquired from 4 major locations to ensure that eye-catching viewlines are revealed. Other main points of interest are the interactive walks, parklike setting that acts as a progressional space to the main gathering corridor, setbacks, facade details, three-dimensional light, and plate tectonics. Architectural lighting also played an important role in the design to help aid in creating a multitude of experiences and amplification of the senses.
