Independence HEIGHTS

Change, in the modern world, often means big plans and big buildings—the re-visioning, redevelopment, and rebuilding of a place to meet current demands for commodities and luxury, consistently in-line with the perceived bounties of the “market.”  In this world, small acts are often relegated to the sidelines, considered quaint, connected to an idealistic concept of “community,” maybe meaningful, but not horribly effective.  But the architecture of change is not necessarily “big” nor about buildings, sometimes it starts small with the organization of a group of people committed to transformation.  Independence Heights is such a place.  It is here that a new understanding of an architecture of change is made plain.
