Abstract
I wanted to devote a year of my life toward creating a building and participating in a body of research that was meaningful. My goal proved to be much more complex than originally thought, for meaning itself is ambiguous. Although ambiguous, meaning is not without definition: it is bounded by the contingency of our ‘cogito’ or horizons of experience. And so I argue that if we assign meaning through a function of self reflection, than perahps a shared experience may transcend the self and reflect community. In an attempt to fertilize community through the built environment, I designed a Charter School on the abandoned 1400 block of Walnut Street in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio.
