Superblock Retrofit, 2014–present
Preserving and improving existing low-income housing blocks without resident displacement as the cornerstone of a strong and healthy neighborhood is the aim of the Superblock Retrofit strategy. Guided by residents of Tilden Houses in Brownsville, Brooklyn—the focus of the proposal—the cost-effective design integrates the superblock into the surrounding neighborhood with new laneways to increase circulation, security, and livability for residents, while a mix of green retrofits, new housing, retail, open space, and community facilities supports a more economically diverse community.
