BLOC70

Cities not only have to deal with diversity of culture but diversity of experiences. A city should be accessible and appealing to people who have had a wide range of experiences - especially those who have had traumaic ones. Bloc70 deals with the prospect of creating a multi-purpose housing complex with a focus on the rehabilitation and integration of combat veterans in a dense urban environment. There is still a undeserved stigma placed onto those who need help rehabilitating from traumatic events and they are often cast aside into closed communities. The question raised in this projet then becomes -

How can we provide an appropriate urban environment for rehabilitation as well as encourage re-intergration through multi-purpose communal and living spaces?
