A significant number of NEA design grants are awarded to programs in which universities engage in community outreach and design buildings and landscapes for and with the neighborhoods that surround them. The often compelling work of these partnerships inspired this book-length analysis, which includes detailed profiles of leading programs from around the country, including Design Corps, the Yale Urban Design Workshop, and Sam Mockbee’s Rural Studio.
