What is happening now!
Welcome to the new look as we transition to the next phase of change at CUBE. We want to engage in conversations, share ideas and help move built environment education to the next level. We want your feedback and for you to follow CUBE and let us know what you think and what you need!
YES! Do you believe it? 45 years ago, Ginny and Dean started teaching us to teach others about the value of our built environment - through the technique of Box City - in 1968! This unique tool has brought planning and architectural language to hundreds of thousands of students - around the world. This understanding has had incalculable impact on our cities since then. Of course, the principal achievement has been through the many teachers who have taught the children - they are the best! And, it continues. What a great time to celebrate all that has been achieved.
The Center for Understanding the Built Environment [ CUBE ] brings together educators with community partners to effect change that will lead to a quality built and natural environment, one and interdependent.
