Mission Statement

The Watts House Project (WHP) is an ongoing, collaborative artwork in the shape of a neighborhood redevelopment centered on East 107th St., across from the historic Watts Towers in Los Angeles. WHP is driven by the vision of local families, artists, and architects who work collaboratively to reimagine the neighborhood through housing renovations and community activism. By tapping into local resources, leveraging existing assets, and building a network of city-wide partnerships, WHP strives to become a model for innovative neighborhood associations regionally and nationally.

Description

WHP understands that art and architecture can play a fundamental role in community and economic development in the immediate Watts Towers community, and seeks to enact the shared visions of neighborhood families by:

+ focusing on the renovation of existing housing, including the improvement of residential landscaping by partnering families with artists and architects
+ facilitating partnerships with existing city-wide resources to meet the needs of families in the project area
+ reducing the ecological footprint, maintenance and operating costs of area properties; and
+ attracting reinvestment in the Watts Tower neighborhood area
