As city dwellers, we are students of our environment, continuously learning how to interact with and contribute to the urban realm and to the world at large. This thesis explores how a school can expand the culture of a neighborhood, how a neigborhood can shape the identity of a city, and how a city can cultivate the growth of a person. The project consists of a master plan for a community college, mixed-use neighborhood, traffic circle, and streetcar station. Within the larger plan sits a Library and Student Center, which emerges as the iconic piece of architecture for the school and the neighborhood.
