View of Proposed Shockoe Square

At the invitation of the Sacred Ground Historical Reclamation Project, Preservation Virginia, and National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Center for Design Engagement team spent a week in Richmond VA facilitating community meetings and developing a design for Shockoe Bottom--a district in the city that was the center of slave trade in the US. So honored to have worked with such an outstanding team and with such passionate support from the community.
