The Entrepreneurship Hub is the product of engagement with our partners at the Central Advisory Committee and Archeworks. Public housing resident entrepreneurs ideated and prototyped the offerings of the Hub through a series of design thinking activities facilitated by architects and designers invested in the public good. Civic Projects will be developing the Hub within the National Public Housing renovation by Landon Bone Baker Architects. This conceptual rendering speaks to ideas identified by the workshop participants. There will be a series of ongoing workshops to develop the full Hub concept for the NPHM.
The Hub is envisioned to be a welcoming space that serves as a resource to the community. Preliminary renderings are based on an early workshop to identify the need for and how a Hub would function at the National Public Housing Museum.
Based on feedback from public housing entrepreneurs, preliminary design renderings have been developed to showcase a Hub that is flexible, provides professionalism and serves multiple purposes. NPHM staff, entrepreneurs, community members, designers and consultants will work together through workshops and engagement to develop a Hub that serves the surrounding community.
