MULTICULTURAL HUB

I am interested in cross-cultural multiplicity in St. Louis, especially
immigrants and refugees, which are mainly located in Tower Grove
neighborhood. I propose a multicultural hub to promote interaction
between the members of an interacting community as well as local
residents. These different cultures are able to learn and keep their own
heritage, as well as share and exchange their own ideas and beliefs
with the other cultures.
One of the world‘s issues that many immigrants face today is being
lost and disconnected in a different culture as well being found in
terms of the adoption and healing phenomena to that new culture and
society. Therefore, establishing architecture through layers of flexible
educational and social program must address the primary issue of
universality and identity. This driving factor must help an individual
maintain his/her culture and support ethnic cultural identity to enrich
the surrounding American culture. This also keeps the people closer to
live in the city of St. Louis since the analysis have shown many of them
are moving away from the city due to the lack of educational system
and security.
The Multicultural Hub project addresses culture and identity to enable
individuals to reflect their own cultural history and background into a
new place. Multicultural Hub also addresses the terms flexibility and
evolving due to the multiplicity of other ethnic cultures that are present.
The people from different cultures are able to learn and keep their own
heritage, as well as share and exchange their own ideas and beliefs
with other cultures and their newly adopted culture. The system of over
layering through architecture cultural identity can be flexible or a way of
communicating within the cross-cultural community.
