More InformationShow full item record
This thesis will create a natural food co-op in a town devastated by natural disaster. The design of this building will utilize a site with an existing structural failure in Greensburg, Kansas, left behind after the rebuilding effort. After a disaster like a tornado, people look for the familiar in their surroundings and lifestyle, and when that cannot be achieved, the only thing left is more emotional devastation. The completed building will provide the community with a place to interact and shop; likewise, the building will be a place for merchants to sell products.
