dc.description.abstractThe crossroads of Flatbush (often called The Junction) is a five point intersection of vehicular and pedestrian traffic. A crossroad where ethnic groups step beyond subtle neighborhood boundaries and merge to use public services and shops. Steel gates roll up at the beginning of each day and pushcarts slip onto the sidewalk. Pedestrians jostle vendors and vendors strike bargains. Senior citizens seeks unlit corners after tracing the sun's path. Night shift workers yawn while gradually adjusting to the morning rush. High school and college students dart in and out of donut shops as they make their way to classes. The electricity emitted from such an urban environment has a lasting effect. It is this energy that I wish to capture in my design exploration for student housing. The development of a physical form that would reflect the vibrancy of The Junction.en_US
