The Integral City Studio is a collaborative project between The New School Urban Collaborative (Parsons The New School for Design and Milano Graduate Finance Lab from Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy) and Elsewhere, an experimental, living museum and artist residency program in downtown Greensboro, North Carolina.
￼Over the last decade, downtown Greensboro has experienced community vitalization through grassroots and city-led planning, infrastructure, and urban programming initiatives. Our partner, Elsewhere, has been a major catalyst to these movements, and would like to continue to be involved in the way the downtown takes shape. This project provided the opportunity to present creative and innovative ideas to revitalize the downtown area. In addition, Finance Lab members were able to provide fiscal strategies that aid in the realization of those ideas.
This book is compilation of our research, ideas, proposals, strategies and the narrative to the story of Greensboro, NC.
