Artist Village: Weaving the Communal Creativity

This is a non-institution for the local Latinx and Black community around South Los Angeles Wetlands Park. The design focuses on traditional and radical craft including textile, pottery, jewelry, metalworking, etc. It also serves as a collective living space for artists to collaborate and engage the community through workshops and other educational programs. Formally, it consists of small clusters of creating and collaborating spaces that are stitched together by gathering spaces. Porosity allows internal programs to be independent yet in dialogue. The interstitial spaces become another layer of informal study, to observe and communicate. This non-institution is a place for learning, gathering, collectivity, and cultural celebration. By creating a non-monumental, small settlement form, the village poses as a dialogue with the neighborhood rather than an authoritative presence. Architectural iconicity no longer defines art, instead, this new form of engagement both among artists and with the public will be the new art form.
