Ferhat Zerin, FAICP

Ferhat Zerin has a uniquely strong background in physical design as an architect, is a natural collaborator in building constituencies, and has the technical capabilities to make plans truly buildable. She has been the lead planner on such major projects as the Chicago River Plan and Chicago’s State Street and Downtown Plans as well as numerous other projects in suburbs and smaller towns. Her hand drawn illustrations, computer graphics and 3D models have provided inspiration and clarity to decision-makers as well as residents. Zerin has freely shared these skills and mentored young planners through her professorial and consulting roles.
