The Periscope Project’ By ENS_Projects In San Diego, CA
July 28, 2011
American practice ENS_Projects has recently completed ‘The Periscope Project’, a mixed-use cooperative for young creatives in San Diego, California.
Originally conceived by Petar Perisic in 2006, the initiative seeks to create viable amenities for students, artists, designers, scholars and activists working with and in response to their urban environment.
Self-sustaining in nature, the project works to visualize alternative land-use within the city, establishing a productive counterpoint to the traditional – and often unattainable – development model.
The complex, which is now operating with its first cooperative in place, is maintained by the tenants who are additionally responsible for developing curatorial, educational and outreach programming.
