URBAN RENEWAL
Editorial Design, Research

Term: Fall 2019
Advisor: Benjamin Franklin
I designed Urban Renewal as a self-collected anthology of essays, podcasts, and speeches questioning relationships between space, gentrification, and the way we so easily forget history when tangible reminders have been forcibly removed. The three chapters of written content of this book were created by Walter Hood, Roman Mars, and Nora Wendl, respectively.

This editorial publication uses the Time Travel feature of Google Street View to document the moments of growth, decline, and change of the Ville neighborhood in St. Louis. By comparing the same locations at different points in time, readers can wander through the decades of rapidly transforming and disappearing neighborhoods.
