Design Trust for Public Space, New York, NY
Summer 2012

During the summer of 2012, Melissa Alexander (MAUD 2013) served as a Program Associate at The Design Trust for Public Space in New York City. The Design Trust is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to improving the design, utility, and understanding of New York City's parks, plazas, streets, and public buildings. Their project-based model brings together neighborhoods, public agencies, and design professionals to identify innovative opportunities within the city.

While at the Design Trust, Melissa worked on two major projects: Five Borough Farm, which looks at New York City’s urban agriculture movement through the lens of community development, and Making Midtown, a report on NYC’s garment district which offers important policy recommendations to increase the viability of urban manufacturing.

Melissa's experiece was funded by the Harvard Club of New York.
