the Littoral: Thesis Project
ThesisCommunity empathy, historical awareness and social responsibility can be expanded, enhanced, and supported by the use of commemorative projects in spatial design. ProjectMy project aims to achieve this through the creation of a community center that offers placemaking and memory creation, commemoration and preservation opportunities. It does this through a range of landscape, archiving, studio and gallery programs, while contributing to the City's Port Lands Revitalization project. Design ObjectivesMy design objectives for this project include: - Providing spiritual (but religious-neutral) grounds for community bonding - Offering a variety of options for people to preserve and look back on both everyday and larger personal and socio-historic events - Fostering empathy and social awareness for events of the past and offering opportunities to learn from micro and macro historiesCreating space for contemplation, reflection, nostalgia, and gathering
