Harlem, Urban, Cultural Center, Community
Architecture | Urban, Community and Regional Planning
The thesis involves directly establishing a coherent dialogue between participants and architecture. The site and architecture involved are only a catalyst to the area it is representing, Harlem. However, the project will have the responsibilities of designating itself as a primary theshold to the famous ditricts and attracting would be participants. It is for this reason the program of cultural progress centre has been chosen in the interest of providing a stimulation program. The intention of the proposed centre is not to compete with the district or communty in which it lies, but to act as its subordinate. This will take place by the centre acting as a source of information thus tackling social issues of learning and discovery regarding a community.
