  • TypeFace in Lindsay Heights

    Bookshed is located between Teutonia Gardens and Franklin Square on Center Street, just off Teutonia.

    Teutonia Gardens and Franklin Square are adjacent affordable housing units at the edge of the Lindsay Heights neighborhood. At first blush, they show no sign of neglect or underuse. But as a community leader working closely with residents put it, “the facade might be beautiful, but many people living inside have experienced deep abandonment in their lives.”

    Bookshed goes beyond the cover, digging into stories and real conversation with residents of Teutonia Gardens & Franklin Square, as well as key neighborhood stakeholders. Inside—the shelves, they floweth over.

    In the Lindsay Heights neighborhood, the TypeFace team worked with Walnut Way and Maures Development to conduct a series of individual interviews with community stakeholders, as well as a series of community conversations with residents. These sessions started with two simple questions — “Who are you and when do you feel most connected to that person?” — and let the conversation flow from there. Excerpts are incorporated into Bookshed.

    Explore pieces of those conversations here.
