Germantown Cultural Corridor year: fifth year place: germantown philadelphia collaboration: Vanessa Miller [LA] | Timothy Linehan [LA] | Taylor Klemm [A] Germantown has transformed from a small urban escape to a once booming commercial district. Today, Germantown is a diverse neighborhood that is full of art, history, and pride. Due to post-war suburbanization and economic troubles, Germantown’s once prosperous economic corridor failed to maintain its long carried inertia. The area now lacks an established economic base and suffers from a privation of business opportunities and access to fresh food. A deficiency of social opportunities such as community gathering areas, entertainment venues, as well as links to ecological amenities has left a strong desire for change among the residents of Germantown. This proposal creates areas such as education districts, eco-district residential models, art and entertainment districts, while symbiotically promoting interaction with Germantown’s historical past. Germantown’s identity will be celebrated and promoted through this project.

STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

tra s o


TREES Provides evapotransporation, cooling of home, creates habitat, manages stormwater, and cleaner air quality

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPLICATIONS Creates a place where people can become educated about the environment but increases corridors for wildlife COMMUNITY GARDENS Creates a place to learn how to grow fresh local food

PUBLIC & PRIVATE OUTDOOR SPACE Not only creates a greenway corridor along abandoned railways but also captures stormwater, allows for community interaction, and food growing

GREEN ROOF Captures rainwater, reduces the heat island effect, regulates home temperatures, provides wildlife benefits

SOLAR PANELS Creates energy from solar rays for the home

TRANSIT Close proximity to mass ansit like SEPTA will create a sustainable and better means of transportation in and out of Germantown SOLAR SHADING Windows and shading allow for sunlight warmth to penetrate into the home during winter and shades in the summer in order to maintain efficient heating and cooling

SOIL

BAC

K FI LL

THERMAL MASS Helps sustain a consistant temperature UNDERGROUND WATER STORAGE Stores rain water from green roof and terrace and can be reused in utilities such as bathroom facilities

OPEN DOOR CONCEPT Doors open straight onto the plaza to increase community interaction and artist venues in return increasing Germantown’s identity

Hugged by history and knit by culture, Paradise has the resilient will to become a role model in this neighborhood but it is restricted by these abrasive borders. Healthy Lifestyles interweaves a network of urban paths and trails that navigate the community through a series of interactive and engaging interventions. Through a series of active and passive experiences Healthy Lifestyles links activity between all age groups within Paradise to create unity within the diverse community. C

Stewardson Competition year: fifth year place: francisville philadelphia The SEED Eco-District is a proposal that tries to comprehensively transform the immediate neighborhood of Francisville into a showcase of sustainable urban development. In order for Francisville to have a successful economy, ecology, as well as a sustainable cultural identity it is crucial for the neighborhood to share resources to create stronger community within the larger context of Philadelphia. This proposal takes two projects embedded in one by creating an engine which can act as a catalyst for future growth but by also creating a sustainable surrounding neighborhood by allowing neighbors to share resources. The SEED will extend the civic qualities of the avenue of the arts, create new places to live, and promote a vibrant, open, and walkable neighborhood and workplace. This diverse variety of program allows for there to be foot traffic on the site virtually at all times bringing a significant amount people to Ridge Avenue for work, living, and recreation. By bringing a high volume of traffic, it allows for the existing businesses to thrive while also attracting new businesses within the area. This not only makes for a stronger economy but also allows there to be a development of a cultural identity within the community. As this proposal is developed and put into action, the hope is that there is a rippling effect on the neighboring areas of Francisville but will also create a generation where sustainable living is part of their everyday culture.

Tekton Philadelphia year: second year place: south street philadelphia TektonPhiladelphia A new post graduate think tank is a plan to build a new complex on a dense urban site located on South and 22nd Streets. The facility will support 50 fellows for a 12 month term and provide housing, meals, a library, studio space, and exhibition space. A non-profit organization will meet a portion of its expenses through a vigorous public exhibition and lecture program, and also through retail and public food service leases. In the building design there is special attention paid to the concept of relationships between student and professor, user and Philadelphia, and the visitor to building.

Avenue of the Arts Library year: third year place: avenue of the arts philadelphia The site situated on Broad and South street in center city Philadelphia. That specific part of Broad street is what the city has designated as the avenue of the arts. Broad although designated as the avenue of the arts only has performing arts, that is its focus. South Street is a great compliment to the Avenue of the Arts because it focuses on visual arts. At the intersection of South and Broad street lies a site that is currently vacant, we decided to put a library of the arts on the existing site. The library connects two different existing cultures on the site. It connects the Visual and Performing arts culture through reflection: refelection of the self. The library lets this happen through spaces that llow one to reflect and discover who they really are and eventually find unity. For those that do not belong to a specific culture get to see first hand what each culture is about.

[catching dreams]

year: fourth year place: park west philadelphia collaboration: Kate Kaman [Artist] | Kim Douglas [LA] | Richard Cianfrini [LA] We live in an age of fleeting thoughts, sound bites and cultural vacancies. Public discussions of what we want for our neighborhoods and our cities are either non-existent, dependent on city agencies or grass roots movements. We have enormous areas of disenfranchised communities and empty lots. One of them is a collection of neighborhoods called ‘Park West’. An area this team know well having worked with the community on a framework plan for the neighborhoods. While there is a concerted effort to re-envision this area, we want to keep the momentum going. Dream Catchers seeks to use ART as this catalyst. We propose a community generated project that fosters meaningful dialogue to create a brighter future for this neighborhood. The project seeks to further civic engagement and to identify common visions for the empty lots that will help move the community forward as well as create a visible reminder of the opportunities these vacant lots represent.

SBM Healthy Living Center year: third year place: strawberry mansion philadelphia Strawberry Mansion has two supermarkets, one farmer’s market, and 59 corner stores. Our findings indicate that Strawberry Mansion is devoid of healthy food access and corner stores have been a primary source for groceries. I propose a community center accessible to local residents that specializes in healthy food access and education. Programmatic inclusions are an educational kitchen, community garden, administrative offices, fitness center and a technology hub. Having internet access is not just a draw to bring people in the center but also to provide access to 60 percent of Strawberry Mansion residents who do not have internet access in their homes. In edition, to accomodate the issue of food access there will be a market that will allow community members to come and shop for fresh food. To help that there will also be distribution that will take place through small trucks that will be in different areas of the community on different days. The cafe will give the community healthy options on the go. The compost center will allow the community and the center to compost its waste and will also allow the center to use it in the garden cutting down costs. These programmatic inclusions will create a center that will help the community uplift while reflecting on the community at the same time.

Patch Adams Clinic + Center year: fourth year place: alleghany avenue | philadelphia collaboration: Brandon Lansing [A] | Phillip Rivera [A] The American health care system has been, and will continue to be, a central point of discussion in our political debate. It is a system commonly understood to cost twice as much as ccomparable systems in other developed countries. Path Adams Free clinic of Philadelphia explores this condition through design of a free clinic health clinic in a disadvantaged neighborhood in Philadelphia. Design here is to be understoood as creative architectural propositions emanting from interdisciplinary research and critical dialogue. The client is a non profit organization who has very little money and the challenge is to try to help the client program in a intelligent way where the client can partner up with a few more organizations that can potentially become viable partners and can economically help the the current client.


Our intent is to design a community health clinic that creates an environment for Self Expression Self Expression is a strong element of hollistic health
