2004 Providence, Rhode Island

Downtown Providence was like many urban spaces in former industrial cities: vacant. This preliminary analysis investigates the street continuity along Washington St. and proposes a site for temporary entertainment and commercial architectures to link vital parts of the community and provide for unaddressed needs in the district. Drawings by Angel Steger. Site Model by Angel Steger and NIco Kafi.
