This public site, entitled "Blueprint for a Just Neighborhood," is created in collaboration with affordable housing advocates, Women’s Community Revitalization Project, Philadelphia Coalition for Affordable Communities, Healthy Rowhouse Project, and a number of individuals. The site itself is a point of departure to address the city’s urgent issues of gentrification and displacement. Situated at 4th and Master Streets in Olde/South Kensington, one finds a community garden, new and old row homes, a park and a community center. At this location, Philadelphia Assembled is building a dynamic presentation space, constructed to resemble the first floor of an affordable house. This space will present personal housing narratives woven with data that corresponds to Philadelphia’s rapidly changing housing market. These stories will be shared through performance, audio, and guided tours that take place within the exhibition architecture and along its surrounding block.

Besides special events the site is open Saturdays, 12:00 – 5:00 p.m.
on June 3, 10, 17 & July 1, 8, 15
