The 5th Annual Placemaking Residency will take place May 9-12, 2016 and explore the intersection of equity and design. Over the next five years, billions of dollars will be spent on development in the region’s built environment. How do we address the increasing economic and social disparity in our cities and how can design contribute to greater equity and opportunity for everyone? Join us as we explore the intersection of equity and design – a timely and crucial community conversation.
