Celebrating Community

The Community Spotlight Series recognizes and uncovers the stories, inspiration, and work behind extraordinary individuals making a positive impact in our shared built environment.

Whether through thought leadership, product innovation, or artistic perspectives, these individuals are relentless advocates of active design thinking and the Center’s role in bringing people together to collaborate, celebrate, and shape our city into a vibrant and equitable place for all.
