Inspired by the First Assembly of God Church which functions as a neighborhood activator, the project looks to set up community-centered sites to combat the widespread vacancy in Newburgh. The intervention begins with a series of structural foundations that are embedded within the site. This sets up possibilities for a variety of future constructions, while also providing opportunities for activation in the meantime. Gabion mesh walls are used in these early stages of construction and activated using found materials. Construction becomes a ritual for the neighborhood to build their community over time. Through this incremental process, we create a network of continuous growth for the formerly thriving William St corridor.
