Instructor: John Dutton

In this project, I’m working on the idea of a complex that combines the residential village and a gathering space for all people in the community. My design is an affordable housing that retains front yard from the conventional of LA houses. This building is also designed for community and shared with community, making Leimert Park a more vibrant community. This communal villages provides both the people in the community and the residents a relaxed and comfortable space to come and live.
