FUBU is a market and community space for the people and by the people located in West Philadelphia. This space creates a new train stop for the community while also bringing life, beauty, economic opportunity, and access to fresh fruits and vegetables. FUBU does not

for residents to become community leaders and take on an active role in the development of this burgeoning urban hub. Hence the name, For Us, By Us.

The population of the Parkside Community has an average yearly income ranging from $14k - $40k. About 35% live below the poverty level and have an unemployment rate of 14%.

FUBU food trucks, shops, and markets provide employment and a new source of income to community members.

The Parkside Community is a food desert, containing only four small “grocery” stores with little to no fresh fruits and vegetables.

The FUBU roof garden is cultivated and maintained by the community, providing fresh fruits and vegetables for weekly farmer’s markets.

There is currently a lack of community space that allow all age groups, races and religions to gather.

A community space is provided for all ages, races, and religions, to gather, play, talk, and celebrate. They are also able to build and transform the open spaces to accommodate any event.

Tucked away in the woodlands of Manitoga, Devour[ing] the Dark is a mausoleum that presents a scene in which mischievous creatures appear to be in the midst of a gluttonous, cannibalistic act. The grotesque nature of their interactions both repulses and entices those who cross its path. Upon approaching the feast, an opening exposes the stomach of the mausoleum. Those who choose to enter will find themselves swallowed by a moist, squishy cavern for two.

Do we take our privacy for granted? What is the line between private and public? If you are the open desert but you cannot see anyone else there, is it private? Is th the porta potty at Coachella public? Taking my precedent from the bathroom at th the Russell Wright house at Manitoga, the goal of my project is to create a space an and atmosphere of exposure and vulnerability by blurring the lines between priva vate and public, exposed and hidden. I have created macro to micro moments of ex exposure and vulnerability by using concentric circular shapes that increase th these moments as you move from outer to inner rings and on towards the cente ters. The concentric diagram needed to be modified to accommodate 3 separate pr programs so I chose the formal action of tension and compression to connect the 3 programs together. To do that, I ‘squished’ and ‘stuffed’ the programs in a m mouth shaped landscape therefore setting up tension as unifying the architectural language of my project. So the concentric rings which specifically are, the la landscape, manmade or otherwise, the circulation shaped as a mouth and the ga galleries shaped as balloons stuffed in said mouth, all prepare you for and lead yo you to the inner most spaces that act as the focal points of the design. Using su supposedly less important programs like the bathroom, office and café which end u being the innermost concentric rings, I have designed moments that blur the up lin n and keep the users always aware, never to be taken for granted. lines


Thank you for your consideration. (412) 463-7908
