High Cotton

High Cotton is a real project that is still in the stages of gathering support and ideas. My studio's work helped Link Ministries and StarCare get ideas of what they want to do. These two groups and other services want to create a place like Haven for Hope in San Antonio. It is a homeless care place where the homeless are helped to get reestablished into society.  The site is physically split by a working railroad. The Northern site was designed to house the drop off center for cops with medical care, different types of housing for the homeless. The Southern part provided the neighborhood a place for them to gather, shop, live, play sports and have events, as well as offices for Link Ministries.
