This project highlights South Central Los Angeles’ (or Black Los Angeles) unique positioning as a dynamic hub of Black culture and creativity. South Central is the densest population of African Americans west of the Mississippi.
For our proposal we selected the Hollyhock House design by Frank Loyd Wright. We wanted to examine themes of cultural appropriation. Throughout this project we redistribute the historical syntax of the American Shotgun aesthetic in order to create an a-typical architecture that is equitable.
