The exterior of the new $66-million Prevention Assistance and Temporary Housing Center built for the City of New York's Department of Homeless Services in the Bronx. A welcoming porch at the end of a sloping ramp, and a richly detailed exterior surface dignify the difficult experience of seeking emergency housing aid. The design is by Ennead Architects of New York City.
