On Wednesday, May 25th, we had founding principal Damien Newman of Central Story, and Urban Re:Vision founder Stacey Frost, speak at our Design Open Mic session about their work creating a new methodology for engaging individuals and communities involved in design and development projects. This new methodology -- which includes an in-depth examination of the processes of design and how they correspond with human life cycle stages -- will be used to facilitate consensus among citizen, governmental and organizational groups participating in the development of building projects. Central Story is expecting to create a workbook of guidelines to be used for the implementation of their methodologies.

In the video from Re:Vision TV below, you can see how this new framework and methodology was used to gather people from many different disciplines to re-envision and re-conceptualize the city block.
