Description

The ​Niehoff ​Urban ​Studio ​is ​a ​program ​led ​by ​the ​university ​and ​driven ​by ​the
vision ​of ​our ​community ​stakeholders. ​The ​Studio ​facilitates ​the ​study ​and
discussion ​of ​urban ​issues ​relevant ​to ​the ​vitality ​and ​sustainability ​of ​Cincinnati
and ​other ​urban ​centers. ​It ​is ​the ​regional ​center ​for ​urbanism, ​where ​university
and ​non-university ​participants ​can ​engage ​in ​events, ​symposia, ​and ​exhibits
that ​explore ​these ​urban ​issues. ​The ​Studio ​is ​structured ​to ​provide ​a ​unique
and ​innovative ​off-campus ​classroom ​to ​support ​interdisciplinary ​work ​among
students, ​faculty, ​and ​engaged ​community ​stakeholders. ​The ​work ​of ​the ​Niehoff
Urban ​Studio ​is ​intended ​to ​have ​a ​tangible ​impact ​on ​urban ​problems ​and
contribute ​innovative ​research ​in ​this ​area.

Since ​2002 ​nearly ​800 ​students ​have ​participated ​in ​studio ​work ​from ​15
disciplines ​including ​urban ​planning, ​engineering, ​architecture, ​design,
anthropology, ​political ​science, ​urban ​geography, ​and ​others. ​These ​students
and ​associated ​faculty ​collaborated ​with ​more ​than ​100 ​community ​groups ​on
urban ​projects ​intended ​to ​improve ​the ​quality ​of ​life ​in ​our ​city. ​The ​Studio ​has
provided ​a ​robust ​public ​education ​program ​to ​disseminate ​information ​and
promote ​community ​dialogue ​by ​hosting ​nearly ​60 ​events ​since ​its ​inception.

The ​Niehoff ​Urban ​Studio ​is ​administered ​by ​the ​Community ​Design ​Center ​of ​the
College ​of ​Design, ​Architecture, ​Art, ​and ​Planning ​with ​oversight ​from ​the ​Office
of ​the ​UC ​Provost. ​The ​Studio ​is ​directed ​by ​a ​professional ​architect ​and ​urban
designer ​who ​works ​in ​collaboration ​with ​participating ​faculty. ​Undergraduate
and ​Graduate ​student ​assistants ​provide ​support ​for ​studio ​administration.
