How do we plan for the next 30 years?  That was the core question that excited us to partner with the East Oakland Boxing Association through the 1% Pro Bono program. EOBA’s thirty year-old facility located in the heart of an industrial zone was over-due for upgrade. The Conceptual Development study for the EOBA lays a series of physical and programmatic steps that can be taken to re-imagine the center's assets. 


Industrial sites are intriguing to blinkLAB because our interest is typological transformation through an examination of complex performance requirements.  As a result, our process seeks to find the confluence of ecology, economy, understanding the desires of people and the management of resources into finely-tuned eco-engines.  At the core is always a new vision for nature.  Interactive Model here.
