Rural communities are declining in population and opportunity in many parts of Canada and the world. The loss of rural communities and their craft and culture causes damage to societal diversity. The Maritime provinces are experiencing declining rural populations in many communities, such as the town of Yarmouth, outside of regional centers such as the Halifax Regional Municipality and the Cape Breton Regional Municipality. Through analysis of existing industry (industrial processes, buildings and symbiotic relationships) and a strategy for consolidation and growth, Yarmouth will provide an example of an architectural approach to this concern. Learning from industry conditions, the development will capitalize on the assets of the town and add value through closing existing loops, creating opportunities, and exposing and proliferating culture. The project culminates in a waste processing plant, market, and restaurant that allows locals and tourists to experience the entire process of local industry, craft and culture.
