INTRODUCTION 7


As human beings in today’s society, we desire to have a sense of belonging. We desire to feel “at home”, to be able to make connections with others that have similar interests, beliefs, morals, goals, and values. In order to develop a relationship with others, we constantly search for similarities that will drive conversations and ultimately create a closer bond. As children, we found a sense of belonging in youth sports programs or organizations such as girl and boy scouts. As young adults, we find belonging in our religious beliefs, in common pride for our institutions, in political standpoints, or simply with others that like the same television show as us. A sense of belonging then typically becomes associated with a specific place: a family home, a church, a designated college building, a community center, a concert, a sports field. It is easier for someone to have their sense of belonging when they are rooted in one location, he or she has established relationships and is a part of a community. What happens to those that aren’t rooted? How do the explorers and travelers of the world find their sense of belonging? Could there be a place for those traveling from other locations where they can find a common ground together? As humans, we never want to feel alone in a new place, we instantly find something to talk about with one another, whether it be simply the weather or a current event. For those coming to a new location, not knowing anyone or much about the place like a local would, where can a sense of community be found? Is that somewhere they can lodge and meet others experiencing the same?

I want to explore how architecture can aid travelers in finding their sense of belonging in a place of temporary residence. Discovering a way to make travelers find their sense of belonging, by architecture, could make the burdens as well as the joys of traveling easier and more fulfilling, as well as encourage more to travel and find senses of belonging in ways they never knew they could. The goal of this thesis is to be a precedent for cities looking to make a stronger connection with travelers from abroad and tourists in one centralized location. The choice of Philadelphia was simple. Its a transit hub between Washington D.C. and New York and Boston. It’s a city full of United States History and diverse communities. There are many reasons why Philadelphia should be a desired destination for travelers making a trip down the East Coast, but the lack of a Hostel community directs travelers to continue on their Amtrak trip with out stopping. The existing Independence Visitor Center is simply an information check point, leaving out the amenities required to make connections with others. Philadelphia is the City of Brotherly Love, founder William Penn wanted the city to be a place where everyone could worship freely which lead to better relationship with the diverse groups settling there. This thesis aims to further that goal to this century, to diverse groups even outside the continental US.

PROJECT THEMES 11


project themes | Problem Statement Is there an architecture that can give travelers a sense of belonging by integration into a community? Solo travelers can feel lonely and unwelcome in new locations they’re visiting. There is a cultural disconnect, sometimes a language barrier, or a lack of familiarity with the location. Traditionally, travelers book a hotel, spend a few days seeing the main tourist sites alone or with a travel partner, then leave for the next location. These travelers have little interaction with the local residences, miss out on specific locations and information that makes the city what it is or how it came to be. These travelers rarely make an impact on the place they’re visiting. This can often lead to travelers gain homesickness and ultimately lose the feeling of fulfillment traveling brings to one’s life. As humans, we gain the most fulfillment through our communities that give us a sense of belonging, a will to live, a purpose in this life. Do travelers have a sense of belonging then? Can a city provide this through architecture?

project themes | Project Statement One way travelers can connect with other travelers is by staying at a Hostel. Through out the United States, the hostel industry is growing rapidly, but it is still behind in comparison to Europe and with competing hospitality industries such as AirBnbs and Hotels. More and more, the bad stigma on hostels in the United States is decreasing as it’s becoming a more accepted form of lodging. Hostels are a great way to meet other travelers, for the solo adventurer to find a companion to sight see with, but there is still a disconnection to the people of the city itself. The goal of this project is to create a community center that invites travelers in by providing affordable lodging. Included in the cost to stay, the traveler will be asked to volunteer in a way that benefits the city and introduces them to the culture and people directly. Simply sharing a room with other strangers doesn’t provide the traveler with a sense of purpose or belonging. The architecture of this project will aim to connect the locals and abroad travelers.

HI USA is part of Hostelling International’s global network of more than 4,000 hostels in 89 countries. The United States list is 50 and growing!1 HI USA participates in the Great Hostel Give back where travelers can earn a free night for each day they volunteer a minumum of two hours in the community. In 2018, nearly 4,000 service hours were docked.2 The International Youth Hostel Federation was formed in 1932 in Europe and the first US youth hostel was formed in Northfield, Massachusetts in 1934 in which American Youth Hostels (AYH) was born. A massive growth in AYH happened from 1980 through 2000s where major hostels in Chicago, New York, Orlando, San Diego, and San Francisco opened. In the mid 1990s with new hostel quality standards, the International Youth Hostel Federation embraced a common global name, “Hostel International” and the original blue triangle logo. Soon the HI - USA branch was established.3

“When their travel dreams took them to HI USA hostels, we ensured travelers’ visits were environmentally-friendly, filled with opportunities to connect with the local community and their fellow travelers. In fact, we hosted over 5,500 programs, attended by more than 126,000 travelers. As these travelers returned home, we kept their travel spirit alive through volunteer opportunities, engaging content, and a sense of place at their local hostel.” - HI USA Annual Report, 2018

SITE IDENTIFICATION 31


site identification | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Philadelphia is Greek for “brotherly love”, named by founder William Penn. He wanted it to be a place where anyone could worship freely, which led to better relations with the local native tribes and fostered Philadelphia’s rapid growth into America’s most important city. Philadelphia was founded on October 27th, 1682 and established as a city in 1701. Many important events happened here, the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of independence in 1776 at Independence Hall and the Constitution at the Philadelphia Convention of 1787. Now, Philadelphia is a city filled with arts, culture, cuisine, and colonial history. It is a top study destination with many colleges and universities, making the city an educational and economic hub. It is home to professional sports teams, the Rocky steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and of course, Philly Cheese steaks.

site identification | Philadelphia Climate Philadelphia’s climate zone falls in Zone 5 of the CBECS of identification. This zone is categorized as having 2,000 Cooling degree days or more and less than 4,000 Heading degree days. It falls in the Mixed-Humid region.7 Philadelphia has hot summers and cold winters. The top line graph and temperature range chart show the change of temperature over time and the range over the months of the year, respectively. Precipitation and snow fall has increased where ten of the wettest months on record have occurred since 1994.8

The Psychrometric chart gives us insight to effective passive and active design strategies in response to Philadelphia’s climate. A medium to large size building must work effectively to deal with the intense heat and cold temperatures of the seasons. Designing the building in a way that takes advantage of the moderate winds and southern sun exposure will assist in relieving active heating and cooling systems of all the work to make the building as comfortable for its users as it can be.

Still remaining on the plot is Franklin Beverage and Rose Tattoo Cafe, these do not interfere with the zone lots chosen for the site. Along the North side of the site is the remaining Callowhill Cut. The 25 foot drop represents where the Reading railroad lines used to exist. Identifiable railings show characteristics of chosen designs by the previous railroad users. The future goal is to develop the Rail Park along the cut by creating pedestrian and bike access, as well as access from underground building floors with amenities for the public, similar to amenities at Chicago’s Riverwalk of restaurants and seating areas.

site identification | The Rail Park The Rail Park of Philadelphia is a project that involves reactivating the old, demolished Reading Railroad train lines into an elevated and lowered park starting at the Viaduct and ending through the tunnel. When completed the park would be 3 miles long and twice as wide as the High Line in New York City. Phase 1 of the park, located in blue below and seen in the site plan opened Summer of 2018 and was designed by landscape architect Bryan Hanes. Now the non-profit organization is working towards raising money and making plans for the next phase. The Cut, show in brown below and partially in the vision diagram is the area that runs along the site of this project. The rendering shows an early concept of the Rail Park team’s biggest goals for what this area could look like. Images show the Park that is completed with plenty of seating, swings, poetry plaques in the ground tile, plantings, and more. There is a hope to open a rail car placed at the left end of the site plan into a breakfast spot, just like how travelers on the Reading Railroad once enjoyed.30

site identification | Site History 42

This lot of land underwent many transformations in its history. Heavy industry sprang up along the rail line. Residences for the workers filled the areas between the foundries. The cut was made by 1901 which resulted in the removal of some houses fronting it. Two foot wide stones formed the wall. Eventually, manufacturers began their business along the cut. They used massive hoists to lower finished products from the factory onto the rail lines. By 1942, there were no more residences as the Electric Power Equipment Corporation moved there. There was a gasoline service station at the bottom right corner of the lot. There were many vacant parcels.41

PRECEDENTS 75


precedents | FLOW Hostel This hostel in Budapest, Hungary is an adaptive reuse project in an over one hundred year old historic building in the Downtown area. In addition to comfortably squeezing 98 beds for young tourists, the hostel attracts by its colorful and fun communal areas. PRTZN Architecture was challenged with changing a once alternative theater, office, and even student dormitory into this hostel. Smaller, more narrow rooms were adapted into the bunk-bed rooms, fitting up to eight travelers at a time. The white walls with splashes of color allow the rooms to seem larger and more inviting. The communal spaces are designed in a chain to allow for the entire floor to bond as a “paraphrase to the emphilade�.š

precedents | Hotel Wadi This hostel within a 300-hectacre forest of a former military base in De Hoge Rielen in Kasterlee, Belgium connects the visitors with the environment through ecological education. The circular shape of the hostel “acts as a space of appropriation and continuity between interior and exterior, between groups and the individual�. The architecture explores relationships and shared space by combining three fundamental landscapes: the natural, the military, and the educational. The space reflects a desire for group experience, the landscape of the previous Royal Navy military during the Second World War was converted into an educational center for young people and a camping area. Appropriately, the structure is made of wood, including a European Larch for the exterior that will turn grey in time in an attempt to harmonize with the darker, surrounding pine trees. A winter garden accumulates heat for the cold months. The common spaces are shaded by the cantilevered roof. The green roof acts as a passive heating and cooling system. This hostel was designed by Studio Bernardo Secchi & Paola Vigano, completed in 2013.8

precedents | HI Boston Hostelling International, the client of this project, hired Bergmeyer Design Firm to design the new location for their Boston hostel. This LEED silver project is adaptive reuse. Bergmeyer strived to make this a sustainable and historic preservation project that could be learned from for future hostels. The design utilizes the existing commercial storefront to provide a variety of community engagement activities and connect guests to the streetscape. The ground floor is entirely public and has a visual connection from the other floors through a common stair, assisting in engaging guests and the community to common kitchen and dining spaces. “Sustainable design features include highperformance space heating and cooling systems, building envelope enhancements, high recycledcontent furniture and finishes, bicycle storage, reduced lighting power density, and regionally-sourced recycled building materials.� There was a green roof and outdoor social event space planned, but not completed. The site is located near public transit and popular attractions. They provide free daily tours and activiites as well as 24 hour reception. The redesign was completed in 2012.15

precedents | Adventure Hostel Adventure Hostel in Bangkok, Thailand is unique for its refurbishment of a four-storey typical shop house from the 1960s into a hostel by re-purposing its window frames and shutters into a privacy screen from the noise and views from the raised public transportation system. Integrated Design Office worked on the design until its 2015 completion. The client asked for a “Thai contemporary culture accent� design, making the reuse of the existing materials the core idea. Every day street components were incorporated into the interior design look such as traffic light, traffic cones, and wood pallets. A colorful, traditional sarong is used for the roof fabric and other furniture upholstery. The colors represent the vibrant and chaotic atmosphere of Bangkok.26

precedents | Boys Hostel Block Zero Energy Design Lab was invited by St. Andrews Institute of Technology in Gurugram, India to design this boys dormitory. It is a 60,000 meters squared facility that houses 360 students. Recreational courts, mes facilities, and terraces allow for intercommunication and activities among students. There is a central atrium that brings in natural light and acts as a solar chimney via the stack effect. The dorm was constructed of all local materials within 500 km radius from the site. The second skin brick facade allows for thermal insulation and light permeability, the “brick jali� design adds character and is designed to minimize solar radiations and direct heat gain into the rooms in this hot climate. There is a ramp and a shaded entrance that acts as a transitional space to remove thermal shock before they enter the building. The balconies through out the space allow for visual connection to campus greens and other buildings. The building form was designed to specifically call for student interaction during all seasons, there is a winter court and a summer court.37

precedents | Philadelphia Hostels Philadelphia Hostels are lacking in number and quality. For the entire city, there is only three that can accommodate travelers at affordable hostel prices. Philadelphia is behind on the hostel industry in comparison to nearby cities such as Boston and New York. The three currently running hostels in Philadelphia are Apple Hostel, City House, and Chamounix.

Apple Hostel is located in Old Town, in a tight alley. The biggest downside is that it only allows US guest 75+ miles away from the city. This small hostel is the only one that reaches Hostelling International standards. It is the only one with laundry facilities and more common space. The images show lots of guests in crowded rooms. They attempted to have a band play next to a Billiards table. In one image, every person is looking at their cell phone instead of interacting. There is room for improvement.53

City House is located in Old Town, a decent location to some of the tourist attractions. The reviews from Hostelworld website repeatedly state that the hostel is not the cleanest and that shower water was not hot.60

Chamounix hostel is a mansion located in Fairmount Park, very far from downtown tourist locations. The hostel was originally an 1802 country home, built on a bluff overlooking the Scheylkill River. By the interior photographs, it is clear that the mansion is over 200 years old and wouldn’t have the up-to-date accommodations. Because the location is so far from public transportation and downtown attractions, the hostel is undesirable compared to today’s hostel standards. The mansion seems more appropriate as its own tourist attraction than a lodging location.61

precedents | District Hall - Public Innovation Center District Hall in Boston, Massachusetts is a public innovation center in Seaport Square. It becomes a gathering space between the Institute of Contemporary art, the public marina, transit stops and several parks. The 12,000 SF center has a public restaurant, flexible assembly space, gathering lounge and tables, other flex spaces called “pods�, and writable wall space. The center is used for pop-up retail shops, classes, and exhibitions. The design is inspired by the industrial uses of the area by references to train cars, rail yards, and boats and warehouses of the shipping industry. Hacin + Associates firm is responsible for the design, completed in 2014.67

The main features are 150 apartments and a community and recreation center, the first for the neighborhood. It will be the tallest in the neighborhood at 20 storeys. Commercial tenants include a Chinatown Learning Center as a bilingual preschool and a new restaurant.74 The 195,000 square foot community center was designed by Studio Agoos Lovera, who teamed up with structural engineering firm Harman Group. The project was developed by a public-private partnership between the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation and JNA Capital, as well as the Chinatown community to be sure the project would meet the neighborhood’s needs.75

DESIGN 93


design | Temporary Roots The Temporary Roots community hostel and apartments is more than just housing for Philadelphia and tourists. It is a location for residents and travelers to come together to learn about each other’s cultures and the history of where they live. The organization of the site directly connects visitors to the future rail park in the Callowhill Cut 25 feet below and the cut leads the Philadelphia public to the building where connections will be made. The building proudly sits on the corner nearby Logan Square and is surrounded by many apartment complexes, a community college, and mixed use programs. The transparent front facade to the lobby and dining spaces aim to invite everyone in to join in on the fun. The Rail Park level meets activity areas and a gallery, drawing the public in to learn more about what is going on inside. The spirit and organization of this building aims to be a model for future hostels and community spaces, a program that can be developed for any US city and beyond. It aims to change the attitude that tourists are on the outside looking in, that they too can belong to a place and find a purpose, if only temporarily.

design | Site Organization The site at street level consisted of open park area, fenced in community garden spaces for the guests to volunteer at during the summer season, and of course the access to the two parks. The access to the parks happens from inside the building, encouraging further interaction between the guests and general public that want to access the parks near the site. Service happens along side the community garden, allowing for drop off and deliveries to the kitchen or into the elevators to the lower level. The trucks can drive through, along the cut, and out to 19th Street. This leaves uninterrupted public interaction at the main corner of Callowhill Street and 18th Street. For site sustainability, there are green roofs to collect rain water, permeable surfaces along the cut. The roofs of the housing units will have PV panels that are only interrupted by shade at short times of the day during the winter season. Chillers will be on the roofs of the mechanical system for each housing massing.

design | Envelope The envelope consists of four components. One is the fibre C concrete paneling system by Rider. This paneling, sized at 2’-4” by 4’-0”. This followed the scale of the three window types on this part of the facade. This cladding is a tan stone color in order to represent this style seen around Philadelphia on many historic buildings. The first two floors that consist of mostly public and social spaces have an aluminum paneling system alongside larger windows. There are two areas of accessible green roof, one for the hostel guests and a completely public one above the double height lobby space. There is access on the third floor from both housing lobby spaces.

design | Structure The structure consisted of three independent steel systems. Two were organized grids that repeated on each level to follow the form of the main masses. This grid system of columns and beams then helped organize the shape and size of the rooms and where the main circulation happened. The third independent structure system was for the middle double height lobby space that supported the glazing enclosure and green roof with the large skylight above. Framing plans make the three separate systems clear.

APPENDIX 129


appendix | Process The design process started with two parti forms on how to initially organize the site and program. The design, clear from this initial massing strategy and the second one, always had two polygonal forms bent at an angle near the middle that would consist of the housing rooms at the upper floors. There would be a strategy to connect the two at the ground level and at least one other higher floor to allow for social communication. This specific strategy had a longitudinal connection consisting of glazing that would be lobby and check in areas. The site strategy connection to the rail park happened approximately twelve feet lower, where this lower level floor had access to a sloped grass area that lead down to park, very similar to the final site strategy seen in the previous section. Common program organization that remained until the final scheme was retail type spaces along 18th street, a gallery at the lower level near the Rail Park, and the general location of the shared dining and kitchen area for the guests. At this point in the early scheme stage, there was only shared or private hostel rooms. Apartments weren’t introduced into the program yet.

appendix | Process This second scheme continued the parti of two polygonal forms differencing the different types of housing between the two. The difference is, instead of a long connection corridor, there would be a glazed mass with a courtyard latched onto one housing mass with a bridge to the other housing mass. The site strategy here would be a pedestrian bridge over to the Baldwin Park across the Rail Park. Rail Park access would happen in the lower level of this public massing at the same elevation of the Rail Park, 25 feet below. The angles of the massing would attract visitors through the site and into the social spaces along the path to the park. The circulation strategy for the two housing masses seen in the final scheme start to become visible here.

appendix | Process This refined massing strategy with further floor plan development came at the midpoint of the semester. This scheme attempted to combine the previous site strategies seamlessly into one. There is an accessible courtyard between the public functions, then the visitor has the option of bridging over to Baldwin Park or descending down the terraced and grass area to the rail park. The overall site manipulation was reduced to a little more than half the area in order to allow for more site program to be applied. The floor plans showed further development of room placement and their common circulation. In this scheme, two bridges at the second level connects the housing units at the front and back of the courtyard. At this stage in the design process, small apartments were included in one of the housing masses to allow for residents of Philadelphia to reside here, further bridging the disconnect between tourists and locals.

appendix | Process At the Gate review around the third quarter of the semester, major site and program adjustments were made as well as the beginning development of elevations. The site strategy through the two housing massings into the parks were simplified, the courtyard was eliminated to make the flow between the two housing areas stronger at the street level and second floor. Structural issues began to be resolved. Further site decisions were made for community gardens and open grass areas. Window treatments and facade glazing began to be developed. The upper floors that contained the housing units were made clear by a different facade treatment than the first two floors. The stepped seating grass design to the Rail Park was refined. The bridge connection to Baldwin Park was moved to only allow access from the inside, making visitors interact with the activity inside the main lobby and public spaces.

temporary roots

Kaitlyn Cunningham

community engagement hostel and sanctuary

How travelers of different backgrounds can find a common ground and be integrated into the current community through a place. THESIS STATEMENT

finding a sense of belonging in an unfamiliar location

As human beings in today’s society, we desire to have a sense of belonging. We desire to feel “at home”, to be able to make connections with others that have similar interests, beliefs, morals, goals, and values. A sense of belonging typically becomes associated with a specific place.It is easier for someone to have their sense of belonging when they are rooted in one location, he or she has established relationships and is a part of a community. How do the explorers and travelers of the world find their sense of belonging? Could there be a place for those traveling from other locations where they can find a common ground together? For those coming to a new location, not knowing anyone or much about the place like a local would, where can a sense of community be found? Is that somewhere they can lodge and meet others experiencing the same? I want to explore how architecture can aid travelers in finding their sense of belonging in a place of temporary residence. Discovering a way to make travelers find their sense of belonging, by architecture, could make the burdens as well as the joys of traveling easier and more fulfilling, as well as encourage more to travel and find senses of belonging in ways they never knew they could.

Why Philadelphia for a community hostel?

CLIENTS Adult travelers from around the globe

• It’s a hub between major East Coast Cities • Strong in tourism for its US History • Home to a diverse population • Lacking in hostel culture that other cities have increased and improved in to European standards

anyone over the age of 18 looking for an affordable place to stay, with a desire to be involved in the improvement of the city

The local community

the public of Philadelphia looking to make a difference in the lives of those from other cultures

Philadelphia means “brotherly love” from Greek φιλεω (phileo) “to love” and αδελφος (adelphos) “brother”. Founder William Penn wanted the city to be a place where everyone could worship freely which lead to better relationship with the diverse groups settling there.

SITE

The site is located at 1825 Callowhill Street. It’s a central location of the main tourist attractions in Center City, especially the Ben Franklin Parkway home to many museums. The site is adjacent to a wide range of locations such as a community collge, adpartments, senior living, retail and commercial establishments, a free library, public transportation, and possibly the next phase of the Rail Park project. The lot is approximately 1.43 acres. Rail Park Plan

How travelers of different backgrounds can find a common ground and be integrated into the current community through a place.

project statement

site: 1825 callowhill street, philadelphia, pa

Is there an architecture that can give travelers a sense of belonging by integration into a community? Solo travelers can feel lonely and unwelcome in new locations they’re visiting. There is a cultural disconnect, sometimes a language barrier, or a lack of familiarity with the location. Traditionally, travelers book a hotel, spend a few days seeing the main tourist sites alone or with a travel partner, then leave for the next location. These travelers have little interaction with the local residences, miss out on specific locations and information that makes the city what it is or how it came to be. These travelers rarely make an impact on the place they’re visiting. This can often lead to travelers gain homesickness and ultimately lose the feeling of fulfillment traveling brings to one’s life. As humans, we gain the most fulfillment through our communities that give us a sense of belonging, a will to live, a purpose in this life. Do travelers have a sense of belonging then? Can a city provide this through architecture? The goal of this project is to create a community center that invites travelers in by providing affordable lodging. Included in the cost to stay, the traveler will be asked to volunteer in a way that benefits the city and introduces them to the culture and people directly. Simply sharing a room with other strangers doesn’t provide the traveler with a sense of purpose or belonging. The architecture of this project will aim to connect the locals and abroad travelers.

client: Hostelling International USA Hostelling International USA is a nonprofit organization with a enduring belief in the power of travel to foster a deeper understanding of people, places, and the world. They promote a community that will make the world better. They strive for guests to connect with the local community in order to breakdown stereotypes. The organization aims to have their guests see the place they’re visiting through the eyes of the locals.

The Great Hostel Give Back encourages community service by providing free hostel stays in January and February to groups of 8 or more who volunteer in the community.

As these travelers returned home, we kept their travel spirit alive through volunteer opportunities, engaging content, and a sense of place at their local hostel.”

HI USA is part of Hostelling International’s global network of more than 4,000 hostels in 89 countries. The United States list is 50 and growing. HI USA participates in the Great Hostel Give back where travelers can earn a free night for each day they volunteer a minimum of two hours in the community. In 2018, nearly 4,000 service hours were docked.

IOU Respect is a two week cultural program that brings together participants from 6 different countries to explore their cultural differences and appreciate the similarities. Valued Voices program helps travelers engage with members of the community around topics affecting the city, country, and world.

“When their travel dreams took them to HI USA hostels, we ensured travelers’ visits were environmentally-friendly, filled with opportunities to connect with the local community and their fellow travelers. In fact, we hosted over 5,500 programs, attended by more than 126,000 travelers.

- HI USA Annual Report, 2018

“When their travel dreams took them to HI USA hostels, we ensured travelers’ visits were environmentally-friendly, filled with opportunities to connect with the local community and their fellow travelers. In fact, we hosted over 5,500 programs, attended by more than 126,000 travelers.

HI USA is part of Hostelling International’s global network of more than 4,000 hostels in 89 countries. The United States list is 50 and growing. HI USA participates in the Great Hostel Give back where travelers can earn a free night for each day they volunteer a minimum of two hours in the community. In 2018, nearly 4,000 service hours were docked.

The goal of this project is to create a community center that invites travelers in by providing affordable lodging. Included in the cost to stay, the traveler will be asked to volunteer in a way that benefits the city and introduces them to the culture and people directly. Simply sharing a room with other strangers doesn’t provide the traveler with a sense of purpose or belonging. The architecture of this project will aim to connect the locals and abroad travelers.

Hostelling International USA is a nonprofit organization with a enduring belief in the power of travel to foster a deeper understanding of people, places, and the world. They promote a community that will make the world better. They strive for guests to connect with the local community in order to breakdown stereotypes. The organization aims to have their guests see the place they’re visiting through the eyes of the locals.

Is there an architecture that can give travelers a sense of belonging by integration into a community? Solo travelers can feel lonely and unwelcome in new locations they’re visiting. There is a cultural disconnect, sometimes a language barrier, or a lack of familiarity with the location. Traditionally, travelers book a hotel, spend a few days seeing the main tourist sites alone or with a travel partner, then leave for the next location. These travelers have little interaction with the local residences, miss out on specific locations and information that makes the city what it is or how it came to be. These travelers rarely make an impact on the place they’re visiting. This can often lead to travelers gain homesickness and ultimately lose the feeling of fulfillment traveling brings to one’s life. As humans, we gain the most fulfillment through our communities that give us a sense of belonging, a will to live, a purpose in this life. Do travelers have a sense of belonging then? Can a city provide this through architecture?

The Million Gallon Challenge is underway as HI USA Hostels are installing 700 Hydrao smart shower heats. They change color depending on the length of time the shower is being used. The goal is to save over one million gallons of water by each person showering for thirty seconds less. The goal is that guests take these habits home with them.
