UHI associate director Benjamin Leclair-Paquet’s article on the mid-century project called the ‘Baltimore Plan’ was published last week in Urban History (Cambridge University Press). In this article, Leclair-Paquet shows how the Baltimore Plan, a project developed between public offices and actors in the private sector, led to the creation of a federally funded urban rehabilitation program in America. The paper also demonstrates how this project pushed the case for participatory processes in housing, while offering an alternative to public housing.
