Annual Meeting Proceedings

Author(s): Joongsub Kim

This submission is based on the results of our architecture school’s multiphase project inDetroit from spring 2015 to spring 2016. The project’s central question was, “what would bean ideal studio model to help our students to address societal challenges frequently raised in two low-income study communities.” This project focused on two societal challenges:lack of social construction (an inability to shape their own community reality) and lack of resilience (an inability to bounce back after misfortune).
