Nate Hommel says that streets are public spaces. During a workshop and didactic session at Assumption Church, the Director of planning and design for University City District (UCD) told residents, students, and developers to hack, tinker, analyze and design to help transform spaces and help people love where they live. When you love where you live, he said, you start caring a lot more about things that go on and you become more involved.

Hommel is pictured at a the Freedom Garden on N. Townsend, which is a few stone throw away from where he was born (St. Joseph’s Hospital).

He is a graduate of SUNY ESF and has worked for UCD since 2012.

Shelly Griffin: Cent$ + Sense-Ability

A statistic was cited during the recent Cent$ + Sense-Ability Fashion Show at The Newhouse School of Public Communications last week that the average American discards about 68 lbs of clothing and textiles each year.

In an effort to show that fashion too can ride the current wave of sustainability, this year’s annual fashion show for the Fashion Communication Milestone featured recycled materials, clothing, and material found in the trash. A host of material was donated by the Rescue Mission. The student designs promoted “Fashion in a Recession.”

A few of the evenings highlights included: hairstyles featuring soda cans as well as, Tina Fey impersonator and Newhouse Program Coordinator Shelly Griffin (pictured above).
