Through analysis of the site, and of the important historic precedents in the area of St. Andrew's, Manitoba, the project attempts to fill a void in the fabric of life of a rural community. Moreover, the project seeks to ameliorate the negative effects that sub-urbanization is having in the present, and will have in the future, upon the community of St. Andrew's. A community hall in a strategic location - at the junction of the historic Red River Heritage Parkway, and St. Andrews's Road - will increase the civic and community presence at the heart of the small town. Sited in relation to St. Andrew's Church, the St. Andrew's Rectory, and St. Andrew's Elementary, the proposed Community Hall will first of all provide a place for people in and outside the community to gather, be it for socials, dances, political meetings, or fall suppers. Secondly, the Community Hall will address the life of the Red River. A problem identified by the research was that new subdivisions within St. Andrew's fail to address the Red River. A Community Hall, which refocuses considerable attention towards river recreation, would increase the awareness of planners and other professionals so that St. Andrew's will be developed in ways which contribute to the fabric of life in St. Andrew's. To this end, the project supports the development of a descriptive, rather than prescriptive, park-like area along the banks of the Red River. Such a park would provide places for children and adults to seek out the river's edge for recreation, both in winter and in summer. Small hills will be enjoyed as sledding opportunities, while a concerted effort in cleaning and scraping the ice of the river will provide for public skating. Boat launches will be used in summer by visitors, and small shacks provided in both winter and summer for respite from the elements. The programme of the building will also support such activities. The main floor and mezzanine should be viewed as "formal," as they address the events of the community at large and ingrain themselves into the life of school, church, and town. The lower floor of the building, however, will have public washrooms, rentable rooms for boy scout meetings, floor hockey and the like, and a concession area. This lower level will address itself to the informal life of the community as embodied through the symbol of the Red River. Ill T A B L E OF CONTENTS.
