  • Room to Grow: The Neighborhood Center wants to expand its South Camden campus onto vacant buildings and land nearby.

Join the Collaborative on Wednesday, November 9 for the URBAN ENERGY II Design Charrette: Planning for the Next Century of Service.  

The Neighborhood Center, an urban outreach mission of the Greater New Jersey Conference United Methodist Churches, has been serving the needs of low-income children, families, and seniors for nearly 100 years from its small campus in South Camden. The Center has room to grow—but needs a strategy for retooling its existing five-building campus and  bringing nearby vacant buildings and land into play.

To celebrate its centennial year, the Center recently convened a community visioning workshop to consider the changing needs of Camden residents and kick off an era of new leadership. The design charrette will translate ideas from the Center’s visioning workshop into conceptual master plans for an expanded campus.

Contribute your design concepts for new spaces and landscapes that support the next generation of social services, create a strong neighborhood anchor, and act as a catalyst for community revitalization. All design disciplines are invited to participate!

Planning for the Next Century of Service is being offered as part of AIA Philadelphia’s Design on the Delaware 2011 conference and provides 8 continuing education credits to members of AIA. Cost:  $50/$25 for AIA Members/$15 for AIA Associates. Register.
