Nomadia

Nomadia

Project for Ana Miljacki’s Mashup Studio.

This proposal for a commercial ferry terminal at the Maine State Pier in Portland, ME envisions a shadow economy of business travelers – nomads who, with wifi and certain comforts, can work literally anywhere. After the summer cruising season is finished, the new hotel on the pier becomes a refuge and an affordable community space. During the cruising season, it converts into a convenience hotel, with ferry terminal included, providing parking, homeland security clearances, and boarding facilities for passengers on the many commercial cruise ships that visit the northeast’s only deep water harbor.
