“What are the social and economic processes that produce places? How does the environment around you come into being?”

Through a fun and engaging curriculum, kids take on deep questions about the role of environmental design in their daily lives — and their ability to participate in the shaping of it. View the Divided City’s new video about our partnership with the Alberti Program below.
