Canal 5 Factory
Adaptive Reuse
2018



Canal 5 factory was used to produce fiber products with textile technology several years ago. However, it has been abandoned for a long time. The objective of the project is to make transformation on the function of the factory, from a industrial factory to a community center for people living around. By investingation, I find people do not have enough public space to do activities and relax. That is the initial part I start the design.
