Lechonera

 Lechonera FrontElevationRender

A "Lechonera" is a pig roasting restaurant and cultural site that has a ubiquitous and important presence across the island of Puerto Rico.  This design explores innovative spatial and formal conditions that can best address the Latino community's identity within a New England context.  The project recognizes that a lechonera in Holyoke involves the creation of a space that has strong visual and cultural references, and that acts as both a place to eat and as a place of cultural affirmation.
