This project is the third project in the series of thematic areas. All projects are activities carried out by the Laboratories of DESIS Network and respond to the call of thematic areas, whose objectives can be seen here.

Developed by the Carnegie Mellon University School of Design DESIS lab in the USA, the project Latham Street Commons (LSC) focuses on improving the health of all people living in Pittsburgh’s Garfield, East Liberty and Friendship neighborhoods by addressing their social, educational and economic needs.

Latham Street Commons is a place where the community can create models for economic development by using the built environment and its relationship with the community. Our multi-disciplinary approach includes people and place, education and economics, social, nature and health.
