Exploring the intersection of public space and homelessness


Episode 3: Jenn LaFreniere and Rex Holhbein of The Block Project

If you could, would you?

That’s the question The Block Project asks us to confront. If you could help someone experiencing homelessness, would you? And not just help by sharing your pocket change or buying some food, but would you help by sharing one of the most valuable things about you—where you live. With it’s network of successful professionals, it’s excessive food and materials, and it’s scenes of safety.  

Today we're going to hear from the architects Jennifer La Freniere and Rex Hohlbein, who haven’t just designed a home, but are trying to design a way to integrate people who have experienced homelessness into stable neighborhoods. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
