EDAW Funds TOD Research

EDAW, an international planning, design, and engineering firm recently held a national research proposal competition for graduate students in urban planning. Accepting various proposals based on their DEEP principles (Design, Environment, Economics, and Planning) on transit oriented development, the firm selected one student to research each area of DEEP.

I was selected as one of the winners for my proposal "Transforming Detroit: Urban Design and the Integration of Transit Oriented Development. Thus, I will be researching and crafting a design based TOD thesis for the next 5 months. With a nice stipend, a trip to Denver, and a chance to finely hone my knowledge of TOD, I feel very fortunate.
