13th street between 7th and Greenwich Avenue

The street I chose is largely residential, except for a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Center that exists, nestled between the St. Vincents Hospital parking lot, and a row of brownstones.
This Center explores the concept of Generic versus Hierachical culture. It’s meant to be an inclusive place of community for people of all gender identities. In the area, there are changing mediascapes, financeoscapes, and ideoscapes.
There is also a difference of small “c” versus large “C” culture, in a place with old, traditional buildings and a quiet atmosphere (large “C”), being almost intruded on with these new ideas of culture (small “c”).

Love, Andrea

  1. I wish we even had an LGBT center to design. *sigh*
