Meridian Mall Sub-Plan (2013)
Student-Led, Faculty-Guided Project - 2013
German urban planning students from Dortmund University School of Architecture teamed up with MSU School of Planning Design and Construction students to conduct a five day visioning session focused on the Meridian Mall property in Okemos, Michigan. The students looked at the property as a blank slate and others focused on a reuse or a conversion of the existing building. The results of this visioning became a part of the Meridian Mall project that is a part of the Capital Access Initiative and the Corridor development study funded by Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
