PROMOTING COMMUNITY: AN ARTISTS' RESIDENCE

by BRAKEFIELD, KATHLEEN HEATHER

Abstract (Summary)
An investigation into affordable housing could disclose a set of considerations to which architecture can respond as the promotion of community. The goal of this thesis is to better understand, as a designer, the elements that foster a community—referencing utopian ideals and architectural precedents—in order incorporate these ideologies in the design of a vertical apartment building, for artists, on Manhattan Island in New York City. This study will show that various types of precedents, architectural and theoretical, may be able to point to clues that will inform the design of an affordable apartment building for artists that promote a sense of community.
