Assembly: Shaping Space for Civic Life
The Center for Active Design (CfAD) is leading a pioneering initiative to understand how place-based design informs a range of civic engagement outcomes: civic trust, participation in public life, stewardship of the public realm, and informed local voting. The findings will be translated into practical design strategies and disseminated in an upcoming publication known as Assembly: Shaping Space for Civic Life. Assembly will serve as a groundbreaking resource for city leaders and designers who seek to strengthen their communities by harnessing design to support civic life. This work is generously supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and guided by a diverse, multi-disciplinary advisory committee.
