This competition board was submitted during undergraduate studio working cohesively with Groundswell Design Group and professor Richard Newton from Olin. Working as a group we came up with the idea of Ecoprenuership, the concept of a self sustaining, productive and economically rich community promoting local business and educational opportunities. The design below illustrates 1 block of the concept on the Axon and Section drawings. These includes components such as chicken coops, orchards, beekeeping, agriculture, training, market space, residential neighborhoods, etc. The components would be taught, performed and supplied for local communities. The corresponding maps illustrate the possible spread of the pilot project in phasing years to come as well as analysis of the lack of access and proximity to healthy food. The section below is unique in that it focuses on seasonality showing all four season in one drawing.
