31 Oct Building Community: 100 Ideas
The 100 Ideas Project is an optimistic way to engage community to better support its capacity and address problems; a belief in our collaborative ability to make something better. Over the course of 100 days, the project shares ideas focused on the themes of purpose, materials, mobility, technology, economy, scale, environment, context, and people – all aimed at building community, supporting capacity, and finding ways to address our most pressing public issues. This exercise is meant to generate a dialogue about keystone projects throughout the community.
Design is an optimistic way to view the world. That is: you have to believe in the ability to make something better. In this case, these ideas are opportunities to build a wave of optimism.
The 100 Ideas Project is the brainchild of Jonathon Geels, a landscape architect working with Troyer Group. Jonathon is active with the American Society of Landscape Architects at both the state and national levels as well as being heavily involved in his home community of South Bend.
