MCD Summer Studio aka ‘Chicago Charrette’ offers a hands-on field-based immersive environment for learning the craft of community engagement at the intermediate urban scale. Working with our community partners –  IMDDesign WorkshopUIC Institute for Policy and Civic Engagement (IPCE), and a host of seasoned scholars, professional practitioners, engaged residents, and community organizers, students learn how to conceive purposeful participatory strategies inviting the engagement of diverse place-based communities for co-creating meaningful design solutions.

Building on the work of the MCD Great Cities Studio collaboration with IMD in spring of 2024, students are working closely with a variety of community, professional and institutional partners to get stakeholder feedback on their “Remaking Place Framework Plan” to support IMDs efforts to design a Work, Study, Live, and Play sustainable “district/neighborhood.”

Hope you can join us!
