A recent feature in Metropolis magazine highlights the myriad ways architecture schools can help their nearby underserved communities. The article features the work of the Urban Design Build Studio (UDBS) and the traveling exhibition An Atlas of Commoning spearheaded by SoA faculty.
The work of SoA Associate Studio Professor Jonathan Kline, and his partner and fellow-alumnus Christine Brill, recently profiled by University Advancement. Kline and Brill are earning praise for their design work around Pittsburgh, such as the new Superior Motors restaurant in Braddock.
Join us for a public review of MUD thesis projects speculating about potential practices of urban commoning for the bottom up transformation of cities around the world.
Congratulations to Stefan Gruber and his team, recipients of a Graham Foundation grant for the upcoming exhibition An Atlas of Commoning.
