Students Win International SEED Award

Stephen Kennedy (MCP’12) and Alice Shay (MCP’12), co-founders of the Firm Foundation project with the Indonesian organization Solo Kota Kita, are among the winners of the international SEED Award for Excellence in Public Interest Design this year. 

Firm Foundation is a participatory design initiative that seeks to reduce environmental vulnerability by helping to establish a positive relationship between waterfront residents in Banjarmasin and the city's rivers. With this aim in mind, Solo Kota Kita (SKK) is collaborating with a group of residents in a riverfront neighborhood called Sungai Jingah who up to now have had limited participation in city development.
