Architecture - Masters
The Urban Commons is located in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. Through a combination of architectural spaces and technological solutions, the place aims to help combat youth homelessness in Brisbane.
This project aims to create a ‘place’ that will support unemployed homeless youths through social and technological aspects. The Urban Commons should not be a place which only reflects the tragedy of homelessness, but provide physical spaces that give the users and visitors hope. The building should also bring awareness to the issue of homelessness, and engage potential employers and public into contributing to the place through social and environment means.
Alvin is a master of architecture student who has great interest in creating sustainable architecture that would positively impact its users and surroundings.
