UNIVERSITY VILLAGE, LITTLE ITALY
Collaborating with our partners at the National Public Housing Museum, as well as local entrepreneurs and Archeworks, we developed a proposal for an Entrepreneurship Hub at the National Public Housing Museum, which will be designed by Landon Bone Baker Architects. Through a series of workshops facilitated by Civic Projects, residents of public housing developed and prototyped ideas including spaces to convene, shared workshop and room for learning within the Hub.
A welcoming, collaborative space, the Hub will serve as a resource for the community. Based on an early workshop, we developed preliminary renderings that demonstrate the multiple uses and programs to be housed in the Hub. Additional feedback from public housing entrepreneurs will help inform the Hub’s flexible design as a space promoting learning and substantive exchange.
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.
