About

This small record group documents two New York City-based projects taught by Parsons School of Design professor Jean McClintock Gardner in the early 1970s. One project focused on the Southern Boulevard Redemption Area in the Bronx, the other on Union Square in Manhattan. These projects involved original research, collaboration with neighborhood organizations and communities, and urban rehabilitation design proposals by students in the Environmental Design Department (now the School of Constructed Environments). Materials include a grant application, an audio recording, a press kit and publicity records, and student research in the form of data sets, interview summaries, design proposals, drafts and final reports, and maps.
