SOCIAL KNOT AS URBAN GENERATOR
SYRACUSE, NY // SUPPORTIVE HOUSING
The goal of supportive housing is to create an environment for changed and changing lives. In this context, buildings become proactive agents in the rehabilitation and empowerment of their residents. This project functions as a generator, creating an integrated ecology of relationships among people, buildings, sites, the environment, and the city. A continuous double-loaded corridor twists in a knot to create a variety of living environments, public/private relationships, and shared outdoor spaces. The building reactivates the urban fabric within and around the central but underused site, helping to position it for positive future transformations.
