Value Proposition

For citizen, politician and stakeholders of rust belt cities who wish to revitalize and rebuild their communities, this study will provide design solutions and recommendations for growth and opportunities for innovation.

We do this by partnering with citizen through the use of participatory design methods along with implementing scenario-planning tool to craft alternative futures with the goal of discovering opportunities and creating a vision for the future.

The research process, synthesis and analysis will take a holistic approach to finding solutions and empowering community members.
