Catalyst: A New Public Architecture for Community Resiliency
MetadataShow full item record
This research is intended to develop an architectural design process wherein the architect actively seeks rural communities in need of social, cultural, economic and environmental revitalization. A new public architecture that seeks to directly engage consumer identity in the rural landscape. By partnering with entrepreneurial producers seeking to develop rural markets of production, the architecture can facilitate a passive learning environment which transcribes the farms product into consumer experience. The farm is inherently social and becomes the catalyst for resilient community growth.
