A Better World by Design 2011 featured Urban Fabric at their Saturday Evening Gala on October 1, 2011 at the Solarium at Hope Artiste Village. Conference participants had the opportunity to browse the Urban Fabric exhibit, and learned about “the history of the space and the revitalization of Providence and Pawtucket.” The event centered around “the chronology of the American City — its industrialization and rise, decay and decline, and recent revitalization.”
A Better World by Design is a completely student-organized conference that places innovation and impact over individual success. Each year, Better World brings a global community of innovators to Providence, Rhode Island to reach across disciplines and unite under a common goal: reshaping our built environment. Better World is an immersive experience that deepens our understanding of the power of design, technology, and enterprise to engage our communities and sustain our environment.
