This thesis proposes new housing for migrant farm workers outside of Harrodsburg, Kentucky. The housing complex deals with architecture’s relationship to place and community while providing a dignified dwelling, imparting a sense of permanence and home to a constantly moving population. The complex deals with place through a connection to the regional built and natural context. By externally revealing programmatic relationships through massing and allowing individual housing units to assert themselves within the collective, the complex becomes an interconnected housing cluster that is neither house nor barn. It instead imparts the image of a small village or settlement, the essence of community.
