INTRODUCTION

Sustenance in Nicetown In the United States, nutrition-related health problems are reaching epidemic levels. These health problems are exacerbated in low-income and minority communities due to the unequal access to healthy food. North Philadelphia is among the ten poorest places in the country, and poorer than any other in Pennsylvania. With the second lowest number of supermarkets per capita in the United States, North Philadelphia and its residents struggle with the economic, social, and health impact of food retail disinvestment from urban communities; individuals and families struggle daily to maintain a healthy diet due to limited access to healthy food in their communities. Philadelphia Health Management Corporation (PHMC) reports that in North Philadelphia, almost 47% of all food dollars are spent on prepared foods, with fast food being the largest single area of expenditure. A direct connection can be made between the density of fast food outlets in a neighborhood and mortality from cardiac illnesses, as can a correlation between fast food outlets and the travel distance to an area with fresh produce. Nicetown is predominantly an African American population with significant Puerto-Rican representation. Due to the racial demographic area much of the food available in the area falls under what can be described as ‘soul-food’. Traditionally-prepared soul foods tend to be very high in starch, fat, sodium, cholesterol, and calories. Not only does the community have one of the highest poverty levels of the city, stores that sell fresh food are extremely scarce. Access to fresh produce and other natural foods is almost nonexistent. Instead, the area is scattered with corner stores that sell processed food and tobacco products, and the closest place to buy fresh fruit and dairy products is a twenty-minute walk away. Access to fresh, high-quality food is not equitable throughout the Philadelphia region, and this inequity has profound health implications. Those with the fewest resources have the least access to the essential components of a healthy diet. Addressing the food problem isn’t solely a matter of quelling hunger, rather it’s about introducing access to nutritious options that are self-sustaining for community members, in place of the highly processed, highly caloric ‘fast’ food that is so prevalent in the area. We’re creating the availability of fresh produce in North Philadelphia year-round, and managing the affordability for the individuals the market serves.

PROJECT PROPOSAL/ SITE SIGNIFICANCE

5


[ PROJECT APPROACH

[Project Approach] The residents of Nicetown have been in a state of blight for sixty years, largely based on the fact that they are unable to obtain the opportunities they need to better themselves and their community. Our design proposal takes into account the basic needs of the area and introduces program influenced by the community. The installment of these pieces will allow members of the community to take advantage of, and make small changes towards improving their lives. This plan for self-improvement is based on the health of the people in Nicetown, physically, mentally, and environmentally. The Urban Market concept incorporates these ideas, respectively, with the design of the fresh produce area and specialty shops, a bookstore, tutoring spaces and classrooms designated for cooking and home improvement, and a hardware store and tool rental area, for residents to learn how to use the tools and make improvements to their surroundings starting with their own home.

SITE SIGNIFICANCE

[Site Significance] Located on the edge of West Hunting Park Avenue in Nicetown Philadelphia, the site for the Nicetown Public Market holds a superfluous amount of opportunity. One of the issues we held at a high importance was the unique stand the site took on for not only the block, but the rest of the city grid. This particular city block is skewed from Philadelphia’s current grid by W Hunting Park which runs perpendicular to it. This site in particular acts as a hinge for the community of Nicetown to connect with the surrounding urban fabric. The Urban Market creates and imperative connection by opening up the corner between 19th street and West Butler Street. This location invoked us to create an optimum amount of street entrances encouraging the community members to use the facility as a throughway while taking advantage of the amenities offered in our program. Since the program proposed is about the mind, body, and environment we felt it necessary to give these three larger pieces of the program a direct connection to the outside near the main entrance areas.

[ PRECEDENTS [PROGRAM]

Mariposa Co-op Market : Renovation and adaptive reuse of historic landmark building Location : Philadelphia, PA

Drawing heavily from a “Greening Groceries” research project completed for The Food Trust, Re:Vision Architects designed the adaptive re-use of a 5,000 square foot Greek-revival style bank in West Philadelphia into an exciting and educational food-shopping venue for Mariposa Food Co-op. The project was designed to be developed in three phases, including retail space, community gathering and education, and a roof top farm. Reusing the old bank building presented the team with opportunities to uncover existing materials and give them new life. For example, former marble from the bank’s wall finishes will be re-purposed as countertops and custom casework will integrate salvaged materials.On the flip side, one of the challenges with the existing building was the quality of daylight. An open layout coupled with the addition of light tubes for more uniform light in conjunction with daylight sensors greatly improves the shopping and working environment, as well as energy efficiency. Supplemental lighting is provided solely through compact fluorescent and LED fixtures. The layout was designed for visual and physical connectivity among spaces to provide transparency that is essential for the Co-op’s collaborative environment. Connecting the product and the consumer helps to develop the kind of intimate and community-based atmosphere that is at the heart of Mariposa. Community resource areas and a customer recycling center make Mariposa more than a place to get groceries. Throughout the store, integral educational signage is designed to inform and interest shoppers.Energy Effective and Sustainable Highlights include high efficiency refrigeration cases, recycled and reclaimed materials for interior finishes, tall north facing windows and light tubes for natural lighting, night curtains for the minimal number of open, refrigerated cases, ceiling fans, operable windows and re-use of built-in shafts to promote natural ventilation during swing seasons, and the Roof Top Farm and Demonstration Area provides an educational outlet for sustainable farming practices.

CONCEPT [BUILDING]

[

Based on our research and what we understood about the current urban fabric of Nicetown, we found the preservation of open space and utilization of underused built space as critical for the revitalization of the neighborhood. The best way we saw to address this idea was to inhabit the vacant warehouse across the street from the proposed site instead of diminishing the already limited green space by developing a new structure. Nicetown has been in a state of blight for the past sixty years. Using the market to promote the idea of self-improvement we are working towards a reformation of the neighborhood. The design strives to fortify the ideas of well-being and community togetherness. - Body : well-being through the advocacy of healthy eating and fresh foods - Public Market

- Focus on produce and groceries supplied by regional farmers - Local vendors on weekends

- supplying food for restaurant

- Spaces for tutoring and afterschool work

- Classes and demonstrations (eg. cooking, home improvement)

- Tool Rental

- Donath Street Park Space

- Mind : well-being through knowledge and community learning - Bookstore - Environment : well-being through safe, clean, and beautiful neighborhood - Hardware Store

26


PRESERVATION - transformation of neglected lot into Urban Park - areas for rest and repose - youth-oriented spaces for play - community gathering - sound and sight buffer for PennDOT and SEPTA activity - minimal built impact - Philadelphia’s Green 2015 movement REANIMATION - Engaging community and encouraging involvement - providing thoroughfare for community members living on neighborhood edge - Provoke further renewal of depreciated spaces 27

CONCEPT [BUILDING]

RESTORATION - renewal of urban fabric - reclamation of existing warehouse into Public Market - revitilizing underused spcae - preserving embodied energy - minimal built impact


[ CONCEPT [PARK ]

The plan we are implementing for the original Donath Street site, in conjuction with the Public Market across the street, is a one acre urban park. As part of Philadelphia’s Green 2015 movement, the city is currently working to reclaim and occupy vacant lots, providing green spaces for its residents. Each park is to be within a quarter mile of each resident’s home. There is need within Nicetown for a place for children to play safely, and making the Donath Street lot an active park for the community ensures that the space is utilized and protected. Priorities of the Urban Park include the implementation of stormwater management strategies, the enhancement of air quality, and improvement of overall health and well-being; the park will increase the value of properties in the community and will bring Nicetwon one step closer to the eradication of blight.

BELO GARDEN : Dallas, TX : Hargreaves Associates

There are currently 202,000 Philadelphia inhabitants that are not served with a green space within a half-mile walking distance of their homes.

PERENNIALS AND HABITATS Because they are indigenous to a specific region, native plants require less maintenance and are welcomed by wildlife, an important role in the local ecosystem. An assortment of perennials that produce seeds, nuts, berries, and nectar provide food and cover for year-round wildlife. A variety of these will be planted in the Donath Street park to attract wildlife and add to the sensory nature of the park experience.

Green 2015 Goal : To unite city government and neightborhood residents to transform 500 acres of underused land into parks for neighborhood residents to enjoy by 2015; it is necessary to ensure that every resident has fair and equal access to a park. This means area for: play space dog walking fresh air and greenhouse gas reduction stormwater runoff collection plant and animal habitat gardens and local crops Park Priorities - improving local economomy and increase property values - stormwater management - improving overall health and air quality - provides children and families places to play and gather

Existing Conditions- Currently the warehouse is comprised of a load bearing masonry walls and wood framing. The walls are made of a layer of brick on the interior, a layer of CMU within the cavity and a layer of brick on the exterior, measuring 1â&#x20AC;&#x2122; 4â&#x20AC;? thick. The wall is uninsulated. Exterior walls deemed fitting for storefronts were demolished and redesigned. Major design gestures were focused on the roof both structurally and aesthetically. The image to the right is a diagram portraying the location of new structural conditions and framing layout.

Each Rib spanning from roof to awning is met by a structural pier built from a combination of steel, masonry and wood. The pier creates the structural bridge between roof, wall and exterior enclosure, while allowing design gestures in the structure to read as one component without the complications of materials bridging interior and exterior thermal conditions. 108
