In the summer of 2015, the 5 Borough Studio worked with the Brownsville Community Justice Center and Made in Brownsville to learn about the neighborhood and life in public housing from youth in the community. We also helped to envision the design for a Community Center for youth living in Marcus Garvey Village.workshop with frampton

Continuing this project over the next year, thanks to the fantastic design expertise of faculty member Tricia Martin and student -now graduate- Nicolas Del Valle Russell, and of course BCJC, the community recreation center opened in the Fall of 2016.
