Charles Cross, ASLA, is the Director of Landscape Architecture at the Detroit Collaborative Design Center; as well as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Architecture. His work encompasses a wide range of park, green infrastructure and community design projects that incorporate civic engagement and participatory design. Embracing the principles of social justice and sustainability, Charles maintains a firm belief that underserved communities deserve good design, and therefore should be the patrons powering a collaborative process-not just the consumers of the end product. He is the recipient of the 2018 Fulbright-Hays Award.
