A big Global Site Plans welcome to our newest blogger, Alexandria Stankovich in Detroit, Michigan.
Alexandria Stankovich graduated from The University of Michigan with a B.S. in Architecture. In order to gain an authentic understanding of the urban context through the lens of education, she became a Denver, Colorado corps member with Teach for America, teaching elementary Special Education. Returning to her hometown of Detroit, Michigan, Alexandria writes about the innovative design projects and urban programs taking place in the Motor City. Fueled by her passions for the triple bottom line – environment, economy, and social equity – she is currently applying to graduate Urban Planning programs with a concentration in Urban Design and Environmental Sustainability.
Alexandria joins the October 2011 Environmental Design Internship program and will be blogging with The GRID until May 2012.
