Newborn House (Re-Entry)

Yunfei Zhang
Newborn House is an interactive environment that provides returning citizens with an engaging way to imagine a community that they want to return to.

The visualization exercise condenses and represents elements that might exist in an ideal community. It also includes elements that might be less ideal. In preparing to leave the institution, a returning citizen is invited to complete a series of steps, making choices, visualizing space and program, and defining goals for a better experience beyond the prison system.
