The thesis focuses on a certain organization that aids cities and their citizens in the growth of communities, the Community Design Center (CDC). This paper seeks to understand the qualities of a CDC. The first chapter discusses concepts of community and design. A history discussion identifies when CDCs developed in contemporary form and investigates the types of goals CDCs strive to accomplish. The next four chapters consist of three case studies and analysis of selected contemporary CDCs: the Los Angeles Community Design Center; Environmental Works; and Pratt Institute Center for Community and Environmental Development. This paper is intended to provide guidelines for developing a CDC, based on the credible points found in the case studies.
