University of Hawaii, Iowa State, and Tulane to host 2020 regional MICD sessions
We're pleased to announce the University of Hawaii Community Design Center, Iowa State University College of Design, and Tulane School of Architecture as the three hosts of MICD's regional sessions in 2020. All three institutions have an outstanding history of engaging the public and using design to strengthen communities. MICD looks forward to working with these universities to bring expert design assistance to mayors across the country.
The three hosts were selected through a competitive RFQ process, during which they stood out from a group of exceptional applicants. Each institution will host one 2.5-day session using the MICD model. At these sessions, eight mayors and a team of eight interdisciplinary design professionals will convene to share ideas and find solutions to the most pressing design and development challenges faced by each mayor. The interchange among the mayors and design professionals sparks a lively debate, opens new perspectives, and generates creative ideas.
