This was a student project by Evan Chakroff and Kevin Noble for John McMorrough's ARCH 842 course, Winter 2007.
"Downtown Columbus is currently experiencing a housing boom, but most units are geared towards higher-income buyers. The addition of lower- and middle-income housing to the downtown market would foster a more diverse and exciting community.
In the past, immigrants to America were able to establish communities on untouched land. Neighborhoods grew organically, and became integral parts of larger cities. Unfortunately, immigrants today cannot establish isolated communities as they have in the past, they must insert themselves into the existing residential matrix.
Our proposal aims to encourage the type of community growth that leads to vibrant neighborhoods by respecting the various scales at which an individual must operate within a collective. Individual units are organized into small clusters, which make up larger neighborhoods. These neighborhoods together form our complex, which in turn participates in the larger downtown housing market." - Evan Chakroff and Kevin Noble
