Pattern T itle: V iable Costa Rican V illage Center Problem Statement: Every community has certain activities and buildings it needs to maintain itself. If these elements and facilities are lacking or scattered, it is harder to maintain a community life. Problem Discussion: There is a structure throughout Costa Rica for a village center The village center is composed of a church, soccer field, market, school, and civic structures surrounding a public plaza. Each of these structures represent major icons in Costa Rican society The church demonstrates a strong moral value system. The soccer field provides social interaction for people of all ages and a recreational outlet. Physical fitness and athletesism are important values in Costa Rican culture. The market is a common source of Costa Ricas economic stability It is a location where the full spectrum of merchandise is available for exchange or sale. The school represents Costa Ricas ongoing goal to provide an education for all citizens and to better the lives of the society The civic buildings house the infrastructure needed in any organized society Some of the organizations involved in the infrastructure are the Development association, police, and general administration. Pattern Statement: Therefore, for a town center to function to its full potential in guiding the community it is important that it includes these critical elements.
