Mississippi Renewal Forum

The Mississippi Renewal Forum, likely the largest planning event in human history with a team of nearly 200 professionals working in the same massive room to redesign the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, began with a phone call from Michael Barranco to Steve. Realizing the enormity of the project, he enlisted the help of his friend Andrés Duany, who enlisted the help of the Congress for the New Urbanism. The Architecture Team at the Forum was composed almost entirely of New Urban Guild members. Numerous other Guild members worked as planners on other teams.
