Ripple proposes active changes in society through its architecture and programming of a new cultural hub in DTLA. This project promotes positive social change in the lives of those experiencing homelessness and the community at large. Activated public spaces originate here at the library and ripple outwards, as does the social effects of this architectural endeavor.
