Revive the Community: Remix
After NYCHA (New York City Housing Authority) withdrew investment in public housing projects, the communities represented by the site—Gowanus community—seemed abandoned. The buildings began to be damaged, but life still had to go on. Under such circumstances, it is inevitable to learn how to use the surplus space of the community efficiently to create economic value and improve the quality of life of residents. Therefore, I propose a feasible funding strategy. It is to add a new Remix system containing new housing and commercial space to the site. With the concept of superimposing the new housing and commercial remix spatial system based on the common new york blocks, the relationship between existing residents, new residents, and business customers is defined and the isolated site will finally be reintegrated into the city economically and spatially again.
