Single Mothers Housing Duplexes
Center Peace is a vibrant and active neighborhood that is very rich in culture and very diverse and so the community has a great deal of potential. I want to address single, double and corner vacant lots in the community by revitalizing and bringing life to these voided spaces and creating affordable duplexes for single mothers. I also want to utilize those vacant lots so single mothers can share collective resources like education, parks and vegetation also increase social interactions, improve the safety for children and incorporate shared space between mothers and their children.
The building is an energetic and optimistic re-thinking of a low-income housing typology that promotes sustainable living for single mothers and a strong sense of community. The duplexes are designed to provide natural cross ventilation for all major rooms of each unit. Designed with a focus on single mothers, the new configuration of duplexes creates a protected and easily supervised communal space for small children.

IMAGINATION is much more important than KNOWLEDGE because knowledge describes WHAT we know. IMAGINATION describes everything that we can potentially know in the FUTURE.
