This summer, Chris will be working on a design research project that explores reinvention in Midwest cities. His work will focus on Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Indianapolis. The project aims to build a collective body of knowledge on how quality design for development and public space transforms cities. Midwest cities are experiencing a renaissance, and Chris argues that a city’s investment in public space can be a fundamental catalyst for change.
Chris’ project is sponsored by the Central Indiana Community Foundation and funded through Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and the Joint Center for Housing
