Zakcq Lockrem MUP '10

Zakcq has been working with the Harvard Urban Planning Organization to develop an alumni mentorship partnership with the Alumni Council. 

Much of Zakcq’s practice has been based on experiences as someone from a low-income background trying to find space within design pedagogy, practice, and culture that lacks racial, socio-economic, and gender diversity. He is now a partner at Mend Collaborative, a new design firm based in Minneapolis and Austin. Mend Collaborative was founded with the goal of developing a supportive and sustainable design practice that understands that professional achievement and productivity must be an outgrowth of life/work boundaries and personal fulfillment. The firm values collaborative work, investing in well-being and development as professionals and people, and being present for communities.
