Women's Building - Competition Finalist

As part of an international design competition, Spacesmith, in collaboration with ARExA and Davis Brody Bond, was one of four finalists in a design for the Women’s Building. Sponsored by the NoVo Foundation, in collaboration with the Goren Group, the projects aims to transform an abandoned women’s prison in West Chelsea into a new global hub for the girls’ and women’s rights movement: 

“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.”
