Yesterday, students in the City Design Principles and Policy seminar got a tour of the transformation of DC’s Union Market district. Many thanks to Geoff Sharpe for taking the time to give us first hand perspectives on the integral role design and placemaking plays in EDENS’ upcoming plans for the neighborhood.
Today, students had the exceptional opportunity to get a behind the scenes tour of DC’s exciting new project, The Wharf. Matt Steenhoek, Vice President of Development of PN Hoffman, answered questions about construction, design and placemaking. In addition, students had another space to analyze using the Gehl Public Life Tools.
