Strategic facilitation project for the National Public Housing Museum, Chicago. (2011)

The challenge? To define the architectural program that embodied curatorial focus, public programming opportunities and the grass-roots advocacy ethos and mission of a start-up museum.

The approach? Organize the agenda and define a set of imaginative interactions and open discussions in a series of workshops intended to facilitate team creativity and institutional problem solving.

The impact? Listening for consensus and strategic insights more concretely defines a collective vision to convert a derelict public housing structure into an issues-driven museum with community and educational uses.  Filter a set of concrete museum architecture functional objectives from the diverse perspectives on “what it could be” from around the table.

Included varied perspectives in a single vision narrative, including young residents, museum management, exhibit designers, peer institutions, architecture, non-profit foundation leadership, plus authors and academics from history, urbanism and the social science disciplines.
