The Residency

For the Community Design Collaborative, joining the Center for Architecture Lab is an opportunity to elevate the history, present state, and future vision of the utilization of design to strengthen our neighborhoods.

We see the built environment as a powerful agent for activism and elevating the voices of communities. We have designed an interactive residency to highlight the work we have been supporting in Philadelphia. Throughout the course of the residency, we will share intimate stories from our non-profit partners, community change agents who are on the ground every day. We will also bring you our most talented and passionate volunteers, dedicated and proud to transform the world around them. The Collaborative is also planning live events with brilliant candid conversations between the best and brightest practitioners.

We are excited and invite you to join the conversation.
