Why is design an important part of revitalizing communities?
The St. Babs project is a perfect example--a vacant historic site has become a popular community hub. If the work of our design team can be implemented, St. Babs will be able to provide better and more usable spaces for programming, and new opportunities for interpreting the history of the site.
What has been most surprising, rewarding, or fun about your Collaborative experience?
It's always interesting to work with professionals that I don't know, or might otherwise not have opportunities to work with. One rewarding aspect of this project was seeing how one of my former students has progressed in his career.
What do you love most about Philadelphia?
One thing I love about Philadelphia is its industrial history. I feel I am always finding out about another Philadelphia inventor or American industry that started or thrived here.
