Design Collaborative’s three architectural interns, Andrew Jackson, Jackson Haynes, and Grace Lehmann (4th year architecture students at Ball State University) collaborated over a five month period on a design competition called Urban Den-cities. The focus of their competition was to develop a zero commute, mixed use residential neighborhood massing concept that is resilient to pandemic impacts and built for a population that lives, works and plays in the same place. The interns were presented with 3 site options located in New York City, New York,  Cairo, Egypt, and Shenzhen, China; they ultimately selected New York City. Deliverables for their project included virtual massing models, site plans, site sections, and renderings.
