Vernacular Infrastructure for Resilient Streets

This project establishes symbiotic relationships among the retails, individuals, private businesses, as well as the government to create both socioeconomic and environmental resiliency.

Bolstering the publicness in commercial overlay retail corridors, the new expanded sidewalk spaces become extended territories of businesses, as well as a shared communal space.

Overlaying these, the new vernacular infrastructure harvests electricity to help offset utility costs for the small business owners who choose to bring their business outside, in exchange for maintenance.

The resulting 45-degree parking spots and the new layer of energy infrastructure, then, establish a favorable environment for transition to a resilient renewable energy future that the city must promote and sustain.
