Rasquachismo is inherently tied to location, but due to displacement caused by commercialization, in Boyle Heights, Rasquache identity is disappearing. La Vida Rasquache aims to counterbalance the changing identity of Boyle Heights through community engagement. by using local material studies, this project aspires to explore the needs of this multi-generational neighborhood. The proposal will revive a vacant auto body shop into a resource center that provides individuals with knowledge, materials, and support to make renovation accessible.
