Abstract

Impoverished and diminished communities are very common in today's society. Many areas fall into despair and are often over looked by the rest of the world. When this happens, how can it be fixed? What are the ingredients needed in order to make these communities thrive again? What role does architecture play when addressing economically declining areas in need of change?As designers, we are taught many techniques and methods to design, but even with this knowledge, we are not guaranteed success in our approach. The question becomes: how do we ensure that our designs are meaningful to others? The answer might lie in one common trait all humans share: love.This thesis project seeks to find the intersection of love and architecture to help facilitate love and support in a declining community.
