This Boys and Girls Club is defined by activation- physical activation of the inhabitants and of the threshold space. The building is comprised of a series of roofs or canopies whose material and level of enclosure defines the quality of the space below. The analysis of different activities places programs under these roofs into either interior, threshold, or exterior spaces. The vague quality of the threshold spaces require activation by the users in order to give them their purpose.

This project is mainly concerned with the way the building can change over time in addition to its genesis. Different parts of the building expand according to their use throughout the day. Seasonally, the threshold spaces are closed in the winter and open fully in the summer. Years down the road, the building can either expand through the same construction system or break down into just a series of canopies that provide limited shelter within the remaining landscape.
