dc.description.abstract This facility aims to fill a void here in Muncie, IN. In most college towns music venues that attract local and national talent are abundant, but in Muncie there exists no such building. This has not always been the case. Over the decades Muncie has seen music venues open with brightfutures only to watch them crumble under financial strain. During the time when college students are gone for the summer is when most of the financial strain is put on a venue that exists to serve the college age demographic. This building creates a symbiotic relationship between three different spaces in order to attract a solid consumer baseboth across generations and throughout the year. A startup business of any kind is hard to maintain as a solitary unit so this building is designed to create interdependence betweenthe three main spaces. Another issue that is explored through the process of designing this building is how to create a new sense of symbiosis between preexisting buildings. To accomplish this goal a once thriving and already developed area of Muncie is chosen for redevelopment. This type ofdevelopment makes use of the concept of urban infill and creates a unique building that addresses both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.The focus of the facility is to create interconnections between the interior spaces while also enhancing the site upon which it is placed. Ultimately this complex creates a final productto fill a void both in the built and cultural environments of Muncie, IN.
