It cer­tainly seems that hous­ing spaces used in a mul­ti­tude of ways — from design firms to lifestyle brands to  artists stu­dios — could achieve a healthy, diverse arts micro­e­col­ogy in the build­ing, bring­ing together a vari­ety of audiences.

Fur­ther­more, for exam­ple, seems like an ideal exam­ple of such a prospect, simul­ta­ne­ously offer­ing fine art print­ing ser­vices, exhi­bi­tion space, and pro­gram­ming to the imme­di­ate build­ing res­i­dents, DC’s BFA and MFA can­di­dates, aca­d­e­mics, activists, pro­duc­ers and audi­ences in other fields. I’m not sure if any of it’s founders cur­rently main­tain an indi­vid­ual art-??making prac­tice, yet they incu­bate dia­logue and dis­course that is highly rel­e­vant to artists work­ing across disciplines.
