  • 24. A Waukon Dessert City officials have asked Iowa State University to help plan its community’s future. Specifically, they have asked that we work with the community to help design the community as an elder friendly place that is seen as a good place to retire. Our current team involves an economist, and interior designer, a sociologist, and architect, and a landscape architect. If you were on the team, what role might you take? So, putting on “design thinking caps” and utilizing your professional experience and academic backgrounds, break into groups and let’s take design thinking for a spin and to help recreate Waukon as “the” place to retire.
