Mapping the DNA of Community Building with Anze Zadel, Architect and Urbanist, Parsons the New School of Design

house card images by Anze Zadel

Anze Zadel facilitated collaborative design of a card game that serves as a learning tool on community building. Co-designers included homeless New Yorkers, housing activists, community building practitioners and students.

Anze Zadel and his colleague Anasa Scott, PT Parsons Faculty and long term non profit strategic planning consultancy, have collaborated to take this tool online to serve as an open- source user-generated hub for knowledge and resource exchange between community residents, activists, practitioners, faculty and students.
