ABANDONED HOME IN STOCKTON’S DISTRICT 6.

Stockton, California is looking for strategic solutions to redevelop and revitalize its South Stockton neighborhoods in the midst of political, economic, and social challenges, and we partnered with the city to immerse the students of Round Two in this real-world problem-solving.

Following the 2008 economic crisis, in 2012 Stockton became the largest city in U.S. history to file for bankruptcy (surpassed by Detroit in 2013). The city has recently come out of bankruptcy and is undergoing positive change through young new leadership like District 6 Councilmember Michael Tubbs (Stanford ‘12), but deeply-ridden problems such as drugs, crime, unemployment, and dilapidated infrastructure still hinder large-scale improvements to urban life. The city was recently sued by the State Attorney General and the Sierra Club over its master development plan for excessive growth and is currently undergoing revision, having been required to focus less on urban sprawl and more on urban infill, industrial and commercial revitalization, energy-efficiency, and sustainability. Specific empty parcels in District 6 present concrete opportunities for urban and architectural intervention.

Representing the city of Stockton for Round Two was a consortium of key stakeholders led by Councilmember Michael Tubbs and his Reinvent South Stockton Coalition and Forrest Ebbs, Director of City Planning. They saw great value in working with a team of young, interdisciplinary professionals who can provide a global perspective and innovative solutions to their local challenges. Twenty-one students from three partnering institutions, Stanford University, San Jose State University, and Ljubljana University, were selected to participate and formed interdisciplinary, global teams to conduct comprehensive research, engage local communities, and strategize sustainable solutions. At the conclusion of the project, we are working with the best students and the city to transfer the best insights of the project to real-world implementation.
