Description/Abstract

"My intentions of this project are to investigate the potential of architecture to augment its efforts of sustainable strategies with aspirations of achieving a socially sustainable foundation in the urban setting. Within the context of Trenton, the understanding of the local communities, the capital and business districts, the education system, and the areas of renewal efforts can reveal solutions to the rebuilding of the city's community by way of reconnecting these now divided forces. What makes architecture critical in this application is its ability to effectively address the very tangible aspects of sustainable practice and the potential for it to mold and facilitate the non-tangible efforts of social sustainability. The holistic, codependent approach necessary for sustainability to be a reality has every opportunity to synthesize and materialize in the form of truly beautiful architecture."
