The Dorchester Art + Housing Collaborative (DA+HC) is a cornerstone project of Rebuild Foundation's (Rebuild) broader vision to reactivate underutilized and abandoned buildings in Chicago's Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood as part of an ambitious movement of community rejuvenation. The unique partnership and expertise of Rebuild Foundation, Brinshore Development, the CHA, and Landon Bone Baker Architects brought new life and meaning into the abandoned 1980s CHA public housing project-- showcasing the value of existing buildings as catalysts for social change through the integration of art, architecture, and community involvement.
