Q. Why is design an important part of revitalizing communities?

R. Design is both a visible and invisible component to stewarding person to person connections.

Q. What has been most surprising, rewarding, or fun about your Collaborative experience?

R. Being a part of the legacy.

Q. What do you love most about Philadelphia?

R. It’s challenges with class distinctions, in comparison to the inherent grit that is generally shared. Its story is old. There will always be a negotiation between the affluent and the impoverished. We will be heading in the right direction if we can network out of the comfortable bubble on neighborhood and social status.
