Community Engagement


On the Lower East Side (LES), the BIG Team worked intensively with LES Ready, an umbrella organization of twenty-six community groups. A joint planning committee prepared a series of workshops at various locations in the neighborhood. At the first workshops, the community debated the merits of various approaches, using the BIG Team’s models of different prototypical solutions. In the second series of workshops, the results of these discussions were incorporated in two possible integral design solutions for each compartment.
