East St. Louis Action Research Project

When landscape architects collaborate to reconceptualize community space, they not only collect information on usage, demographics, historically important features, environmental considerations, economic constraints, and goals but also engage with residents to ensure their needs will be met. At various points in the process plans are shared so that they can be refined or reimagined to better serve everyone.
