This course is a LA Design Workshop working collaboratively with an Urbana Planning Workshop taught by Janni Sorensen (UP 378) and an Architecture Studio taught by Professor Robert Selby, AIA, (Arch 372).  The studio will be conducted in association with the East St. Louis Action Research Project (ESLARP).  To become familiar with East St. Louis and the work of previous classes, visit the ESLARP website at the following address:   http://www.eslarp.uiuc.edu/
