With a degree in architectural engineering, Daniel Edwards knows how to build things. But the challenge of building back decayed urban neighborhoods took his education to a new level. For the past five years, Daniel and his wife Ebony have worked to understand the dynamic of urban development. The result is the Urban Building Project, a catalytic neighborhood development that will provide optimized spaces built around how people live. It’s part of a broader vision to rebuild thriving life in overlooked communities - including integration with jazz, arts and more.
