In 2000, CDS was founded by UW-Milwaukee as a provider of preliminary design and planning services to underserved Wisconsin communities and a promoter of research and instruction concerning public interest planning and architecture. Its goals are to:

– Be a Catalyst for positive physical change in areas with insufficient access to design and planning services
– Form Partnerships that promote our mission
– Stimulate funding & construction where they are most needed
– Research, Inform & Improve the existing design and construction process
