2013 Graduate School Public Lectures: Anne Whiston Spirn
Join us for the latest event in the 2013 Graduate School Public Lecture Series, Restoring Mill Creek: Reflections on 26 Years of Action Research in an Inner-City Neighborhood.
For more than 25 years, the West Philadelphia Landscape Project has been changing the face of the Mill Creek neighborhood. Using urban design, sustainability, and community engagement, the project has brought community residents together, transformed a chronically failing school, and forged relationships between inner-city children and privileged university students. Anne Whiston Spirn will reflect on the project and discuss the lessons it has taught neighbors and planners along the way.
Anne Whiston Spirn is a professor of landscape architecture and planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Learn more about Whiston Spirn.
