Lynwood Youth Center
Lynwood, California
The goal for the project was to create a center that reflects a positive imagery for at-risk youth in the City of Lynwood. The design was developed in collaboration with the community, where two charettes with youth, parents, city officials, and city staff were conducted. This process resulted in the youth and the community taking ownership, and with this ownership, the building has been largely protected from vandalism. This facility currently serves as an extension of the local educational system and as a support facility where youngsters receive encouragement to pursue a better future.
