RAIR’s mission is to challenge the perception of waste culture by providing a unique platform for artists at the intersection of art and industry. Situated inside a construction and demolition waste recycling company in northeast Philadelphia, RAIR offers artists studio space and access to more than 450 tons of materials per day.
The project is the single largest investment in human services in the region, with an investment exceeding $130 million dollars. Designed by MGA Partners Architects, in association with PZS Architects and landscape architects Andropogon Associates, and built by T.N. Ward Company, the 130,000-square foot super community center is situated on 12.4 acres located at the junction of several of North Philadelphia’s most troubled neighborhoods. The center will double the amount of services that The Salvation Army currently provides in Greater Philadelphia and will house an array of programs designed to address the economic, educational, health, recreational and spiritual needs of the communities it will serve.
