  • #ArchitecturePhotoSeries: New York, NY | June 25, 2019 | #SLUM | “Make-Shift": The making of a shared human environment, stemming from the rubble of dirt, dark ethereal waste lands and a coming due to the lack of places to go and affordability issues. Slums are a parcel of land housing the poor. The room for growth is not foreseen in the creation & birth stage of the slum, so unlike built cities with infrastructure that grows and expands outward, the slum festers and grows in density but inward, disease in clustered spaces spread wildly and quickly across the land. Makeshift roads and stairways are made from whatever material lays close by for temporary solutions to navigating the community, which end up becoming permanent and uncared for nor maintained. The slum is chaotic and this home for some is the epitome of  stress as sadness. How can a place be so dim in its architectural character. There is no charm nor is there a vibe here of traditional love and happiness. There is a dark tone. A silent cry of unwant and even danger. Pride is not the undertaking of the land and the architecture represents the people who inhabit the space, as individuals who want better. Rags and kitchen cloth hangs from the sill of windows that are either cracked or broken altogether. This place must’ve once been a thing of beauty. Joy must have swept the land, but now it is simply a habitat. A shelter. The children play without a care in the world, not knowing of life on the “other side”.
