RETHINKING THE COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER OF LOS ANGELES
Bloomedhive is a mixed use building system that aims for community integration through both form and program layouts. The building is designed to be a collection of hybrid community programs to primarily serve as a health clinic and a medical training hub. The building organization is influenced by the distribution of community resources found in piecemeal fashion throughout Los Angeles. The organizational layout is inspired by an analysis of the medicinal echinacea flower and its blooming center. Bloomedhive is designed as a space for optimum human health and wellness through a spatially sprawling plan centered around planting and circulation.
