Can mingling different businesses bring greater prosperity? Can neighborhood buildings and spaces produce happiness? Can the sun and wind actually improve a person’s well-being? Build Ivywild answers these and similar questions in words and sketches that are designed for everyone — from entrepreneurs and small business owners to government officials to students to neighborhood advocates.

In this real-life story of awakening an old school, Build Ivywild offers a blueprint for environmental, business, and cultural sustainability. It provides solutions for maintaining social and cultural well-being while achieving economic prosperity and creating healthy environments.

Build Ivywild provides an in-depth chronology of the design, approval, and funding process for repurposing the old Ivywild School, but it accomplishes much more. It sets a new standard for successfully organizing businesses, designing buildings, and creating community.
