This book chronicles the remarkable multiyear initiative, provides inspired design for those who historically have been omitted from enjoying its benefits,and serves as a model that shows how cultural organizations can team with schools, business, and community groups to begin to effect meaningful change. Contributors to the book include Steve Badanesm, David J. Brown, Ben Nicholson and Michael Sorkin. Also featured are the award-winning design proposals from twenty-five individuals and teams from across the country and selected images from more than forty-five other submissions.
