17 Jul UrbanWorks : UNO Veteran's Memorial Campus
We just got the opportunity to spend a couple days photographing this school with Pat and Chris from UrbanWorks. The project is the result of an adaptive re-use of an existing brick structure in the midst of Chicago’s Archer Heights. The area is filled with manufacturing centers and the blue collar families work and live close enough to the school that many students walk there. I believe the building will impart a sense of well earned pride to the Latin community it serves and feel that this re-use symbolizes how immigrant families can rebuild upon their own foundations a better life for themselves and their children.
