This project was a competition entry for a site in Detroit, where a K-12 small community-learning academy was reimagined through the lens of health. This entry addressed the project directive with three specific pedagogical and architectural solutions.


PLANTING- Consideration was given to the immediate site as well as parcels of land within the surrounding
context. These vacant, open, and demolished parcels were identified and mapped for satellite crops.


CULTIVATING- The notion of the classroom extends beyond the confines of the school as the students are
encouraged to reach out and take ownership of the 3 level process involved in farming.


HARVESTING – All of what the crops yield from the satellite parcels and the site gardens are then sold within
the community center as well served to those in the community in need.
