The YMCA is a family center based on the community filled with people of all ages and walks of life. The concept “Gathering” is an idea that brings the opportunity to gather and build a stronger community for this project. This design finds a dynamic and inclusive gathering place that fosters a healthy lifestyle and positive relationships. Promoting the idea to join an active lifestyle, this facility gives back to society one step at a time.
A motivation door allows users to focus on their health and wellness, both mentally and physically. The door initially starts with the obese figure and upon entering the main building of the YMCA, the figures change into slim and toned. This concept helps users visually, which creates a strong bond between imagery and users.
