The purpose of this study was to learn about the historical development of Eight Street in order to use this information in the revitalization of this area with the new migration of artists.
This study demonstrated a cyclical pattern prompted by the economical success of the immigrant group. The 1960 Cuban migration brought an era of life to Eight Street. As the Cubans became successful they left the area causing a decline. Presently the area is witnessing a migration of artists that may bring it new life.
The thesis retrofits buildings in this area to create a series of artist studios. These studios are designed using elements of 1960 Cuban urbanity, an era of robust urban life for this street.
