Historically Significant Dedicated Work Spaces


Research surrounding the local historic identity and effective co-working methods inspired me to explore individual and collaborative work areas that pay tribute to the Wright Brothers and Paul Laurence Dunbar. The innovative teamwork of the Wright Brothers suggests the opportunity to honor the collaborative spirit and create a social work area for groups to work together.

Paul Laurence Dunbar was a poet, and honoring this historical figure through a dedicated area for individual thought and solitude could promote productivity for solo workers in the space. The conjecture is intended to inspire ideas surrounding historical significance in a way that contributes to productivity. The idea is that the strong historic personality can be celebrated in a way that allows different types of workers having their needs met in an outdoor work space. Additionally, this opportunity can serve the needs of Dayton by providing an educational component of Dayton history.
