//2 Re-Evaluation

After having changed the combination of building program making up the mixed use development in studio Ten, moving away from retail and towards civic architecture calls for a secondary analysis of the typology review, re-assessing which of the precedents are most relevant to studio ten.

DMMA’s competition entry stands out as most relevant to the developing studio 10 project, feature the same building program though out the scheme. The proposal also features a residential tower as well as offices, a civic center and prominent public plaza[1]

With the change in studio ten, the Mixed use 107 apartments projects is now of greater significance then in the typology review, feature the same basic typologies; with residential, office spaces as well as social facilities. However more significant is the inclusion of a day care facility and how the design considerate of children that will be occupying the facility.[2]

Montmatre Mixed Use by Babin+Renaud, features more similarities to studio ten with the change to civic architecture, however due to the differences in site, methodology of the project and lack of open public space it remains of medium relevance. [3]

Finally, the Mcadams Mixed Use competion entry remains of high significance; it features residential, retail and civic architecture, specifically a theatre. The way the theatre has been integrated into the site to reduce its impart is of great significance. Further to the similarities in building program, the development is also situated in a parkland environment and features a successful public realm.[4]
