CED team of MUD, MRED+D, M.L.A. students reaches ULI Gerald Hines finals
An interdisciplinary CED team has been selected as one of four national finalists in the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Gerald Hines Competition, a two-week interdisciplinary urban design and development student competition that typically attracts more than 500 (100 teams). This year’s competition asked students to create design proposals for a mixed-income, mixed-use community in North Charleston, South Carolina.
The UC Berkeley team is composed of three Master of Urban Design students — Yash Gogri, Srusti Shah, and Sagarika Nambiar — one Master of Real Estate Development + Design student — Mahek Chheda — and one Master of Landscape Architecture student — Justin Thomas. The team was advised by Harrison Fraker (former CED dean and professor emeritus of architecture and urban design) and industry advisers John Ellis (consulting principal, Mithun) and Marc Asnis (project manager and urban designer, Perkins&Will).
The group’s submission, "The Leveling Field," strives to mend a history of economic, educational, and environmental inequity and create a more inclusive future for the city of North Charleston. View the team’s plans and designs.
