This was a project by Robert Lemon for the CRP Internship award competition, Spring 2006. Student projects on affordable housing, neighborhood (re)development, environmental preservation, transportation, and other topics were displayed in the Banvard Gallery at the Knowlton School of Architecture on May 29 through June 9, 2006.
"This project examines the Hispanics in the western most part of the Greater Hilltop Neighborhood Area in Columbus, Ohio. It examines the cultural characteristics brought from Latin America and inserted into Columbus. More specifically it examines how Hispanics have shaped their physical environment and what cultural aspects they have had to transform to life in Columbus. In examining these aspects this report looks at population trends, transportation uses, shopping characteristics, and the overall built environment." - Robert Lemon
This project received the second year student honorable mention at the competition.
