RESTORING PERSONAL TERRITORIES FOR HOMELESS VETERANS.
Landscape Architecture as Social Critique, Activism, and Advocacy.
8,000 veterans are homeless on the streets of Los Angeles, mostly concentrated into the area of Downtown known as Skid Row. With that population on the rise, there is an increasing demand for facilities tailored to veterans’ needs. We worked with Skid Row’s Weingart Center, a leading transitional housing and support services organization, to develop a plan for a new facility that leverages site design to facilitate personal rehabilitation and social engagement.
