ARCHITECTURE FOR A COMMUNITY

by KANNEL, CHRISTOPHER M

Abstract (Summary)
Architecture for a Community is an architectural project intent on inspiring a sense of community in my hometown, Montpelier, Ohio. Based on the views of several residents who participated in the design process, the village’s plan for development, and my own observations, the project looks to utilize the assets of the community to solve the problem of decentralization it faces. The solution developed from these observations is a community recreation center. By providing recreation space for regular use and flexible space to accommodate a wide variety of activities, the building is intended as a place for community to be engendered through the regular interaction of its patrons.
