Abstract:
Winston Churchill said, "We first shape our buildings, and then our buildings shape us". This observation of the relationship that humanity and the built environment share with one another is one of extraordinary insight. When it is applied to the concept of sustainability, it becomes clear that society and the built environment are forever locked in a codependent circle. Under close inspection, sustainability is not merely thinking green for the environment, or for the sake of our pocket books, but also for the continuation and cultivation of thriving, successful, and responsible new generations. The dream of a Utopian society, comprised of self-actualizing people, can only spring from those who are sensitive to social sustainability; who seek to reinforce the ideas of sincerity and preservation as deliberate foundations for urban growth. This project seeks to identify a strategy for a real estate development intervention by designing a vehicle for introducing quality of life principles through a place-specific environment and the reallocation of private funds to the public sector.
