Title: Architecture for Community: Redefining Social Architecture
Author: Foobalan, Malini
Abstract: This thesis investigates the question: can architecture create a sense of place and dignity amongst the homeless community? The typology for examination of this problem will be a hybrid of a transitional housing facility, and a community development center. The guiding idea behind this research is “by taking a look at the built environment, we should realize that architecture creates an emotional connection between human and building for a life satisfying experience.” The justification for this project is that, “using architecture as a facility for the homeless to develop a sense of place and create an identity for themselves.” A facility that can provide these psychological characteristics is essential for the service of the homeless community in South Lake Union, Seattle. The facility uses 60,000SF of area.
