LOVE is Divine:The 2014 Barbara G. Laurie NOMA Student Design Competition
NOMA is issuing a challenge to design a Youth Based Facility that will "fundamentally change lives': The design requires entrants to generate a redevelopment plan that incorporates historic preservation, adaptive reuse, and sustainability metrics and values encouraged through SEED, all while maintaining the current vision for the city of Philadelphia.
Known as the "City of Brotherly Love" and the "City of Neighborhoods", Philadelphia is proud to boast countless neighborhoods within numerous enclaves - each one having it's own unique and distinctive qualities. North Philly is the neighborhood immediately north of the Center City (the central business district). In the early 18th century, as Philadelphia prominently grew in importance and population, then pastoral North Philadelphia became an attractive alternative to the burgeoning city and was developed as a suburb for the wea lthy Philadelphian. As the industrial age peaked in America, North Philadelphia gradually transformed into a working man's town. Years later a combination of the Great Depression, outsourcing, and "white flight" would take their toll on North Philadelphia in a fashion similar to other major US cities of the mid to late 20th century, if not in a more pronounced fashion.
