Sweet Water Foundation

Emmanuel Pratt, cofounder of the Sweet Water Foundation in Chicago’s South Side transforms waste–of people, materials, physical spaces, and time–into community resources. Operating at the intersection of architecture, art, urban design, and social praxis, he views urban agriculture as the solution to achieve food security, neighborhood stabilization, and ecological sustainability for vulnerable communities. The resources and faculty of the GSD will enable him to hone and present his theoretical framework and develop a policy, zoning, and land use strategy for a specific site.
