Ok so here's the deal, our second project for my Architecture studio is to design a pavilion (restraunt, museum, offices, etc included inside) 7,800 sq ft. But it's an actual design competition based on the coney island parachute structure. http://www.gothamist.com/archives/2004/12/08/coney_island_parachute_pavilion_design_competition.php So I"m looking for feedback and info from people that have been there and people that live nearby. Some questions I'd like reference to but not limiting to.... What kind of atmosphere is there on the island? happy spirited / gang activity/ etc? What do people from this region find of importance? Is the historical aspect of the island / park significant and interesting? Are most people that visit the park / area going to be beach goers? people out for fun park amusment? Do these people tend to keep to themselves? Generally outgoing?
