New York, U.S.A. (2013)
Academic project in collaboration with Juan Guzman, Abhimanyu Prakash,
Grace Pelletier and Yu Zhang
The project aims to activate New Rochelle's economy bringing new investment through the creation of a knowledge hub. New Rochelle has served as a dormitory-city for the New York metropolitan area, and although it has an increasing student population, it has failed in retaining its young creative class.
The urban proposal focuses around the concept of Education based Economy, creating a research and knowledge pole along the main urban corridors.
