Entry Description

Jacksonville, once a thriving city of commerce and art,
in in a state of neglect. It is a textbook example
of downtown decay, with new developments mostly
on the outskirts, people have little reason to
experience their downtown at all. Cortex is the
solution. It will bring new technological and artistic
advancements to the heart of downtown, acting as a
showcase for sustainable, thoughtful design. The
nervous system of the building is exaggerated,
symbolically and physically connecting new ideas with
the existing city.
