building in a community

November 2, 2012

 

I have always tell students that the measure of a good building is how it functions after the architecture magazines have left it and its life has begun. Case in point has always been the power of the spaces in Le Corbusier‘s Salvation Army building in Paris.  Populated by the cities homeless, the building still works and works elegantly. This morning I took supplies down the street to the Hanrahan & Meyers Redhook Center for the Arts Building that is a check point for Redhook Initiative’s outreach. The building  is doing a great job today. The clear spacious entrance way can handle drop offs, medical help upstairs and volunteer distribution wonderfully. The power of modernism at its best.
