The Baker-Ripley Neighborhood Center
The campus of the Baker Ripley Center supports a large under served population in the Gulfton neighborhood of southwest Houston, Texas. The master planning process included six months of intense community engagement with residents to identify assets and future needs. Located next to an existing community center, the campus includes a new middle school, a public library, a health clinic, a business incubator, a community health and fitness center, an outdoor movie venue, a community arts center, a farmers market and other outdoor public park venues. In response to suggestions from local residents, the building designs interpret regional Southwestern American art and architectural language.
