About the Author

Goody Clancy: Architecture, Planning, Preservation is a Boston-based firm with more than five decades of experience in the planning and design of housing. The firm's residential designs have won numerous awards from the American Institute of Architects, the Urban Land Institute, and the United Nations. The Wall Street Journal called the firm's master plan for rebuilding Chicago's Cabrini Green, "a model for revitalizing neighborhoods," and named it one of the most significant projects at the turn of the millennium.

Robert Chandler, AIA, David Dixon, FAIA, and Geoffrey Wooding, AIA, are all principals of Goody Clancy. The late John Clancy, FAIA, and Joan Goody, FAIA, were also firm principals.
