MULTICULTURAL

COMMUNITY CENTER

CULTURAL NETWORK In our everchanging and globalizing communities, it is necessary to create a resilient cultural network. Through the design of a multicultural community center, recent immigrants and refugees will be empowered to succeed in a space designed to promote lasting crosscultural connections within the Pittsburgh community. The use of warm earth-tones, seating areas that promote socializing, and engaging gathering spaces that bring people together will allow anyone from the Pittsburgh community or around the world to feel welcomed to expand their own cultural network. The center features a food hall that serves food from all different cultures, a market where guests can purchase cultural goods from around the world, an art exhibit, a performance space, counseling offices, and classroom used for classes such as English or citizenship.

REFUGE

PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK STUDENT VERSION

The displays educate the customer about the country, its geography, and its current state. The displays all feature handmade goods made by refugees from the countries, which can be purchased with all of the proceeds used as a means to provide necessities for success for refugees in America. These necessities include food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, school supplies, and more. Refuge aims to make a difference in refugees’ lives, while also opening the minds of consumers to welcome this vulnerable population into our country.

Refuge is an experiential pop-up shop that allows consumers to support a good cause while also becoming more aware about the refugee crisis in the United States. While customers walk throughout the store, they are able to experience the cultures of different countries through the store’s displays, which all represent a different country in which refugees flee from to come to the United States.
