Revitalizing Suburbia: Build Integrated Communities
MetadataShow full item record
Urbanization has dragged workers to the city center day after day, to get to and from work for the last century. The intervention of the hub enacts as an alternative to urbanization of the city, allowing neighbourhoods to intensify locally. By minimizing the need for commute, an individual’s time, energy and mental sanity are precluded from the hectic travelling. Through analysis and trend observations, minimizing the need of commute can have macro and micro impact on the city. The hub addresses the issue of commute by introducing a new typology of workspaces that support the mobility of work, through locations in communities where the concentration of long distance commuting is. To serve the changing dynamics of the workplace, the hub provides a plethora of spatial diversity to suit individual needs. Amenities should not be a marginalized benefit. With the blur of work life balance, the goal is to integrate leisure activities and services that support daily life. Ergo, the hub aims to cultivate collaboration and foster cultural identity for the modern dweller. The proposal aims to support a healthy way of life and sustain growth in the revitalization of existing suburban communities.
