2012 Annual Awards Winner: Student Project Award
Chester Remakes is the work product of the Temple University Community and Regional Planning Department’s graduate capstone studio course. The student project promotes investing in the city’s more traditional spaces: its neighborhoods, its downtown and its places of recreation. Recommendations strive to offset the legacy of environmental degradation in the city and to rejuvenate its ecological and recreational assets and improve community health. The plan rises beyond speculation and whimsy and promotes action, action which is already taking place.
