Date started: 2008 Date completed: 2010 Background La Esperanza Center is a non-profit organization established in 1952 as a traditional meeting place for the neighborhood’s rapidly growing Latino community. Over the years it has become a comprehensive adult learning center, offering tools for self-improvement through formal classes and counseling. Programs and services they offer include English as a second language classes, technical assistance to aid people with government and private services, preparation assistance for the General Education Development (GED) diploma, day services for adults with developmental disabilities, academic assistance to children failing in school, and family literacy counseling. In 2008, La Esperanza Center sought to add services that would provide healthy food choices and information on nutrition and caring for the environment, addressing another unmet need of the Washington Heights Latino community. Objective La Esperanza Center asked Architecture for Humanity New York to conceive a plan for an indoor marketplace that would be housed within a 1500 square-foot hall in the basement of the Saint Rose of Lima Church. The space would become a dedicated marketplace for La Esperanza Center to sell fresh produce and disseminate information on health-related issues, nutrition, and food preparation. Solutions The Green Indoor Plaza, designed and built by Architecture for Humanity New York, included five easy-to-clean-and-store kiosks to display fresh fruits and vegetables for sale by La Esperanza Center to the community. Refrigerated storage, display graphics, and dedicated space for handling transactions and disseminating informational materials were also included in the plan. Results The Plaza delivers information and fresh produce to the community every Monday -Thursday from 10am - 1pm. During the colder months, the market is located in the main hall of the Saint Rose of Lima Church. The market extends to their outdoor patio in warmer months. Families shop using reusable bags made from sustainable materials.
