Cooperation, Dispersed, Empowering

Houses, as acquired by the POWERHOUSE, are seen as containers for various social activities, including art, community gatherings, and religious teaching among others - mostly an affect of the low cost of housing and vacancy.  The architectural object is complemented by a community initiative, which reinforces the building’s ability to create new and reinforce existing social relationships between "classes, groups, and individuals" as promoted by Thomas Markus. The Powerhouse serves as an art studio, hosting three months residence periods for artists doing site specific work.
