My final final review. the greenville stitch, infrastructure planning studio. a project seeking a holistic, cohesive planning approach across a jersey city neighborhood currently defined by disinvestment and inattention to jersey city’s affordable housing crisis. greenville presents a solution to the crisis, with 218 acres of vacant land available for redevelopment. the project seeks to create physical, socio-economic, and community connections from the hackensack to the hudson waterfronts by providing for affordable housing and job opportunities. my individual piece focuses on a smaller block that fits into the whole redevelopment plan.
a year ago, i never thought i’d make it to my last final review of architecture school. i had questioned everything i thought i had wanted out of the typical path of an architecture education, but doing so allowed me to create my own path and work on the types of projects - research & studio based - that helped me realize my interests in architecture and the role i can play in the real world urban context as a designer. the way i think now is so different from four years ago, and has changed for the better. i’m grateful for the new perspectives i’ve gained and how i can further apply what i’ve learned. it doesn’t stop here.
thank you to everyone who has been a part of this journey and has helped me arrive at this destination. i’m looking forward to going out into the world with this new layer of how to see, understand, & design for it.
