MOBILE WELLNESS UNIT |

Brooklyn, NY

Awarded this DesigNYC project in a juried competition to design a mobile wellness unit, serving the Latino communities of South Williamsburg and Bushwick. In an area plagued by high rates of obesity and diabetes and lack of formal healthcare, this interactive unit educates the public in the practice of herbal remedies that are commonly passed down through generations. An urban strategy for the deployment of these units also stitches together programming in disparate locations offered by the non-profit client.
