The former Bayview Correctional Facility will be reborn as The Women’s Building: a home for social justice leaders working to ensure that all women and girls can live free from violence, poverty, and discrimination. More than just a workplace, it will be a vertical neighborhood, designed to foster serendipitous interactions, build partnerships, create networks, and grow sustainable solutions.

To begin the redevelopment process they created a design competition open to professionals of all design fields, with a special emphasis on women architects from diverse and traditionally underrepresented backgrounds.  I created a competition packet and press release to kick off the project.
