Title: Sustaining Rural Communities
Author: Parkinson, Samantha
Abstract: Sustaining Rural Communities This thesis analyzes the use of sustainable architecture to satisfy the socio-economic needs of a rural community. The research methodology used to create this project is a mixed-method, quantitative and qualitative, approach. A mixed-use development allows an opportunity to solve and satisfy more than one need in a rural community. Bowbells, North Dakota, is a good example of a community that can benefit from this type of project. Research was conducted on green development and its benefits; the needs of Bowbells, North Dakota; and current solutions to providing opportunities in rural North Dakota. In response to the research conducted and needs of Bowbells, the building includes a cooperative grocery store, business incubator, deli and coffee shop at ground level. The upper two floors contain apartment units and community room. The building is approximately 42,000 square feet and is located on the corner of Main Steet and Railway Street in Bowbells, ND.
