Cincinnati: Over-the-Rhine Design and Build

As part of the Department’s engagement with issues of social justice this leading national and multi award winning design/build program can be done as summer studio or a full semester residency. It takes place in Over-the-Rhine, an inner city community marked by extremes of homelessness and gentrification. Students redesign and renovate buildings while interacting with consultants, code officials, and material suppliers. Above all, they work with real clients, the OTR community.
