Look/Mira Exhibition

Look Cover

In the Spring and Fall of 2007 two neighborhood design workshops were held in central Holyoke to discuss the creation of spaces for recreation, transportation, arts and culture that would act as a catalyst to revitalize the center of the city.  These visioning sessions brought together youth, residents and city officials who identified potential projects and resources, and sought to build a sense of empowerment, cohesion and interdependence for all residents of Holyoke.

The proposals developed here touch on many issues that are important in developing holistic architectural projects for Holyoke.  While these issues can be identified and discussed individually their inter-relationship is an essential characteristic of many projects.
