Meet Our Summer Fellows

2011 Summer Fellows in Civic Works and Transportation at OpenPlans

This summer, the Civic Works and Transportation teams are enjoying a great boost of energy and enthusiasm from our four visiting fellows: Andy Likuski, Naama Lissar, Merran Swartwood, and Therese Diede.

Here’s a taster of what they’re up to: Andy is developing open source extensions to Google Sketchup to support local street planning in 3D; Naama is mapping (literally and figuratively) opportunities for community participation in planning; Merran is investigating transit usability through an intervention focused on bus riders in Brooklyn; and Therese is cooking up some funky animations to explain where Civic Works is headed. Look out for a Q&A with each fellow here on the blog before the end of the summer.
