"At the intersection of Colfax Avenue, 14th Street and Court Place lies a triangular parcel that most pedestrians and motorists likely pass by without a glance. Though it may be inconspicuous today, the site’s unique location – across the street from the Denver City and County Building and Civic Center Park and blocks away from the Colorado Convention Center and 16th Street Mall – gives it enormous potential to become a new connective hub for downtown."

Oculus — "Roads, Not Walls"

Oculus, the publication of AIANY, includes Polis Station as an example of how designers might think about ways for spaces of justice to support development rather than deprivation.

"Part of Gang’s vision was simply reconsidering who these buildings are meant to serve. Police stations can be made smaller, more approachable, and less fortress-like, which creates rapport and trust between citizens and police. Adding basketball courts, WiFi, mental health clinics, and community meeting spaces can help build reliance and legitimacy, and ideally stop someone from entering the justice system entirely."

Children and Nature Network — "New Tom Lee Park Will Be a Nature Game Changer for Memphis Neighborhood"

Children and Nature Network — "New Tom Lee Park Will Be a Nature Game Changer for Memphis Neighborhood"

"Memphis is the nation’s second poorest large city, and its poorest zip code — 38126 — sits next to Tom Lee Park. Sixty-one percent of the people who live in that mostly-Black zip code are poor, and the median age is 24. In the other surrounding zip codes, 33 percent of the people who live there are poor.

In those neighborhoods, community centers and parks exist, but they tend to be places structured around sports and planned activities and not nature. Like most communities inhabited by people of color, green spaces are rare – and nature parks are rarer."
