SVA presents A Home for the Homeless

The road back to a productive life from a homeless or formerly incarcerated situation is not easy.  Nor is it an uncomplicated task to receive children, after years of separation, who were previously placed in another’s care while a parent was undergoing challenges.  

We present thoughtful solutions by School of Visual Arts BFA Interior Design:Built Environments junior class.  The students were challenged to create expandable apartments for twenty single parents in which to live for a three-month period while learning a trade, taking parenting classes, and receiving  their visiting children.

Taken into serious consideration were the energy saving industries including solar, wind and geothermal harvesting, water retention, and the capability of growing organic food onsite. These activities provide a valuable message to the inhabitants, their children and neighbors on the ways in which they can help one another and provide sustainably for the planet.
