The Epicenter is community-based resource center located in a small rural town in Utah. We design and build houses with our own hands and host community events. We’d like to add on to our self-renovated office by designing and building an exterior structure for community gathering.
The Epicenter is one of few gathering spaces in our town of 953 people, and we want to encourage more activity in our town. The new structure will house our community bike-share program (AKA Epicycles), act as a the only public recycling station, collect water (for a public washing station), and act as a shading structure. The structure will be built in 30 days using reclaimed materials (where applicable). The Epicenter building sits on the historic corridor of Broadway only 100 yards from the Amtrak station. This structure will allow us to provide shelter and services for those traveling by train as well as for the local residents. We believe overlapping public infrastructures makes for a vibrant and well-used community space.
