Directed by Gregory Delaney, clinical assistant professor of architecture, the "Good Grids" vertical studio drew inspiration from a 1913 Chicago City Club ideas competition which sought to rethink – and re-energize – an urban grid that had grown formulaic in the name of efficient growth for turn-of-the-century America.

Part studio, part traveling classroom, "Good Grids" began with a five-week tour in summer 2015 to examine the diversity of the grid across 37 cities and 19 states. Guided by this direct engagement with the grid and its many forms, students then developed their own entries to the 1913 competition.
