Knowlton School of Architecture (KSA) researchers, led by professor Kay Bea Jones, are working with a team of designers, planners and developers assembled by the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) to improve the remediated former 3M/Auld site on 5th Ave and North 4th Street in Columbus.
Students in ARCH 844 have interpreted the outcomes of the community meeting held 19 July 2011 at the Godman Guild adjacent to the site to help neighbors, planners, and grant stakeholders to visualize possibilities for improving quality of life and food access in the community.
The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development is supporting this research focused on an agrarian urbanist overlay and food security for the area. The exhibit is online and in the library at Godman Guild through January. Take a moment to check it out and provide feedback.
