This project proposes a Centre, an architectural space that will help the people of Haiti, (many of whom live in and around the city), while also educating and engaging others in Haitian culture and reality. This Centre includes a combination of programmatic elements within an appropriate urban setting. The site of this project is in Boston’s Back Bay at the intersection of Commonwealth Ave and Clarendon Street, in between Copley Square and the Boston Commons. With the objective of raising public awareness, this site has the ideal balance between the tourist and local community use. This Centre
