Massing Model by Ugur Tan and Rebecca Greenberg

Massing Model

[Market] Housing aims to combat diabetes and obesity by mitigating the surrounding food desert. This social housing complex provides on-site food production and local food sale through a greenhouse and ground floor market, offering healthy options for both residents and their neighbors. This communal approach is reciprocated through an integral residential and site design. Tessellated gardens wind through the public ground floor and private residences, providing green space and community gardens to both public and private users. All are encouraged to take ownership of these spaces and cultivate their own crops or vegetation. Locally grown food may then be prepared in one of the many on-site communal kitchens to provide nutritious meals for families and local school children. Overall, this collective experience welcomes all through the market, gardens, and kitchens for an opportunity to build a healthier South Bronx Community.
