Marking the beginning of a five year partnership between the Jim Vlock Building Project at Yale and Columbus House, the YSOA Class of 2019  designed, constructed, and curated a pavilion  for New Haven's Arts and Ideas Festival, shedding light on issues of homelessness, housing policy, and home through artifacts, graphics, and audio recordings.  Many thanks to the support of  Columbus House ,  Gray Organschi Architecture ,  Breakfast Woodworks , and the  Yale School of Architecture  for helping make this vision a reality.
