In Chapter 6 of 14, "Suits: A Woman on Wall Street" author Nina Godiwalla connects her anceint Persian-Indian, or Parsi, culture to modern times through experiencing the benefits of immigrant community support across the United States. Descended from 10th century Iranian Zoroastrians who immigrated to India and, the United States based Parsi culture is small and extremely close-knit. The culture values achievement and organizes a network to promote successful community members.

Unexpected support provides Godiwalla firm footing to successfully transition into a new home and school. View more at http://www.captureyourflag.com

Paradise Lost / 失落樂園 Community space to immigrant workers / 移工 M.A.S. (Micro Architecture Studio) Adviser / 張懷文老師 HUAI-WEN , CHANG Designer/ 黃乙元 YI-YUAN , HUANG 龔智群 CHIH-CHUN , KUNG "印尼街"位於北車旁不起眼的小巷弄內，是東南亞移工們的心靈寄托之處。這裡有熟悉的語言、道地的家鄉菜、親朋好友們，對於久久放一次假的移工來說，來這裡有如回到故鄉般。 然而現今的印尼街內的社交空間狹小、人車共道、無法遮風避雨還有充斥著汽車廢氣。未來，還面臨被都更遷移的危機。 我們希望透過可模組拆卸的臨時微建築，來解決社交空間不足及法律限制的問題；竹子構成的模組空間，除了回應東南亞特殊文化外，本身輕盈卻有結構性的特質，易於搬運、組裝與拆卸；微建築上方及側面的薄膜構造，除了可以為移工們遮陽避雨外，還可配合氣候引導風流使內部空間達到宜人的溫度，同時吸附周遭廢氣粉塵改善空氣品質。 "Indonesia Street" is located at the humble alley next to the Taipei Main Station,served as the Spiritual sustenance for the immigrant workers from Southeast Asia.Here are friends,family and the delicious home cooking.For the exhausting immigrant workers,coming here just like returning...
Migrant and hosting communities face long-term challenges in the integration process. Immigrants must adapt to new laws and ways of life, while hosts need to adjust to multicultural societies. Integration impacts many facets of life such as access to jobs, real state and public services and can be well approximated by the extent of spatial segregation of minority group residence. Here we conduct an extensive study of immigrant integration in 53 world cities by using Twitter language detection and by introducing metrics of spatial segregation. In this way, we quantify the Power of Integration of cities (their capacity to integrate diverse cultures), and characterize the relations between cultures when they act in the role of hosts and immigrants. https://arxiv.org/abs/1611.01056

A growing community of Somali immigrant families in St. Cloud, Minn., has presented multiple challenges for local educators who have been grappling with not only how to meet the students' linguistic and educational needs, but also how to create a learning environment where they feel safe and welcome.
