Territory is a place-based urban design studio where young people are building better futures for themselves and their communities through the practice of design.
What We Do
Doing projects in public spaces, young people use their lived experience, gain civic problem-solving skills, discover transformative career pathways in design, and advocate for including young people in the design and planning of Chicago. Territory's work comes from inside the community. As an equity-driven and restorative design justice-based practice, each youth-led design project helps make the community whole again, and improve the daily lives of all the people who live there.
