Hill is Resource Team Member at Mayor’s Institute on City Design
David Hill, assistant professor of landscape architecture in the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture and principal at D.I.R.T. studio, was a Resource Team member in the 59th National Session of the Mayor’s Institute on City Design, June 4-6, 2014, in Louisville, KY. MICD, a National Endowment for the Arts Leadership Initiative in partnership with the American Architectural Foundation and the United State Conference of Mayors, organizes two-and-a-half-day sessions in which mayors engage leading design experts in case-study problems to find solutions to the most critical design challenges facing their cities.
“It was great to be a part of the conversations,” says Hill. “Together with the Mayors, we strategized about how each design project could contribute to the spirit and life of each individual city.”
The Mayors’ Institute conducts six to eight sessions each year held throughout the country. It was founded to both educate mayors about design and to educate the design community about the latest practical needs of cities. For more, click here.
