Join us Sunday, May 2 for the 2021 Urban Living Tour, presented by MKSK! 

A fun way to explore the city, the Urban Living tour is a self-guided open house style event. This year’s tour has brought together new builds that have recently been finished, some that will be in progress, and some that you may be seeing for the first time.

MKSK Studios presents the 2021 Urban Living Tour

You’ll also learn more about Columbus’ beautiful urban spaces and the key role MKSK has in some of the most transformational projects in the city. Their team leads the design and implementation process for many of Columbus’ urban projects like the Scioto Greenways, Dorrian Green, Easton’s new expansion, projects around The Ohio State University, the Arena District, the Long Street Cultural Wall, the Scotts Miracle-Gro Community Garden Campus, Grandview Yard, and more.

MKSK is a collective of landscape architects, urban designers, and planners who are passionate about the interaction between people and place and we are honored to feature their team and their projects throughout this year’s tour booklet! Find out more about MKSK at mkskstudios.com.
