    ‘Middle Main’ Poughkeepsie is an underfunded gap between Vassar College on one end and waterfront development on the other. PAUSE, an arts organization focused on community development, along with their partner organization, Hudson River Housing, invited us to design an intervention that considered 'placemaking' and involved local residents. We met with community leaders in order to gain an introduction to the neighborhood. Additionally, students erected a platform on site to allow for interaction and feedback directly from local residents to further their appreciation. The class challenged students to take the problem out of the realm of theoretical thinking and extend it into the real world. Our goal was to rethink the urban space using creativity, empathy, play and the language of design.
