New Book: University-Community Design Partnerships

Posted by on January 24, 2003

Announcing a new publication from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Princeton Architectural Press:

University-Community Design Partnerships: Innovations in Practice
Jason Pearson, Editor
Mark Robbins, Series Editor

From the preface, by Mark Robbins, Director of Design, National Endowment for the Arts:

“Design is rarely viewed as an essential force in making and remaking our society, and too often, social needs, education and innovative design are perceived as separated by unbridgeable gulfs…” “The contents of this book…document work already underway through university-community design partnerships in cities and small towns across the country. The programs discussed fulfill social needs while also contributing significantly to both design education education and design excellence…” “The programs featured here galvanize students to approach community-based projects, and by extension all public work, with the same vigor that they show in studio-based work.”
