The 2018 YARD Anthology


We created YARD to change the way places change. We believe that focusing on short-term creative implementation while thinking strategically about the future is the key to creating growth that is smarter, faster and more inclusive. Our work in 2018 reflected this core value. Last year, our work touched 64 cities in 24 states and 8 countries. We master planned neighborhoods and downtowns across the midwest and designed multi-million dollar development projects. We ran a pop up co-working space for a week, painted crosswalks in a day, built an overnight district, and created something called the ‘Bird Cage.’ We focused on creative implementation and demand discovery, not just on big visions and pretty pictures. And most of all we had fun. And we intend to have even more fun in 2019. Won’t you join us?
