Home for the Houseless

Currently in society minority groups such as the poor, women, and racial minorities, do not have a voice to make change. For this reason inner city communities, such as Washington Park, face crime, poverty, and other forms of social marginalization. Many inhabitants are trapped within a system that does not successfully provide equal opportunities to them. In order such unjust treatment to see a decline measures must be taken to prevent the furthering of such forms of oppression. It is the goal of this project to use architecture as a means of focusing on community needs and desires to work towards the prevention of such issues.
To begin this process this project focuses on addressing the needs and concerns of the African Americans in the community in order to heal forms of oppression to create a sense of identity. I also look to focus on healthy eating, community sense of ownership, wellness, and identity, education, entrepreneurship, local black owned businesses, employment, recreational activities, and reconstructing of dilapidated spaces.
