This is More Like It…

February 14, 2011

Design Observer has just posted a new essay, “This is Flint, Michigan,” from Wes Janz.  Janz is a landscape architect and professor at Ball State University in Indianapolis who has been working with his students and locals for a number of years on projects in the City of Flint.

The honest, thoughtful, and optimistic look at the city and his experiences is an essential read for students and professional designers, residents, and the curious alike and leads to some seriously powerful questions about how we design and create space in places like Flint.

Many thanks go to Josh Wallaert, assistant editor of DO’s “Places” journal, for the heads up.
