Joe Colistra believes in the power of community and that if we could share more meaningful data, instead of trying to steal it, we might see advancements beyond our wildest imaginations.

In addition to his work with KU, he is the founder of In Situ Design, an international architecture and urban design firm. In Situ has won multiple awards and been published even more. The firm is obsessed with finding ways to use architecture as an instrument for transforming communities.
