Simple Nurture: Weaving Motherhood and Community
More InformationShow full item record
There are community centers in nearly every city that are used to some extent. Some are good and some are bad. In most cases, the existence of a community is a prerequisite for the construction of a community center. This proposal wishes to break that norm and use the existence of a community center to create a community. Among minority demographics (in this case, the demographics of women and children), there are many injustices- from domestic to social to medical. This thesis proposes the creation of a community center that will foster relationships among a group of women in Papillion, Nebraska, in order to empower them and offer easy access to resources. The research will highlight the key architectural elements that contribute to creating a sense of comfort within a space, the resources which are most helpful to women, and the existing projects that already solved some of these key issues.
