This design was for a indoor climbing school in Philadelphia. It attempted to fit over 100 linear feet of climbing wall into a two story building to create a climbing school for the community. My concept managed to fit 164 feet of linear climbing wall by wrapping it upward in a spiral. Starting at the basement level, students can climb all the way around to the second floor, or choose to continue up to the roof where they can watch their classmates catch up through the glass floor. The 3D model was designed in Revit and the plans were built in AutCAD.
