Juneau, AK is a geographically isolated community that is not connected to its state’s road system and is only accessible by air and water. The Willoughby neighborhood began as a Tlingit summer fish camp, and over the past 130 years, it has experienced haphazard development, growing into a combination of disconnected residential, military, civic, commercial, and cultural uses. Perhaps the neighborhood’s only unifying characteristic is a series of parking lots. Beyond housing a myriad of arts and community programming, WAC will serve as a unifying anchor for this community, equally welcoming in year-round Native and non-Native residents, seasonal state government workers, and the summer cruise ship traffic.
