In this workshop we will visit the intersection of 23rd Avenue and Jackson Street, discuss the neighborhood, its scale and traffic patterns as well as develop an understanding of what the residents would like to see for the area. We will also discuss how we can incorporate green living/working spaces into a design and ways to introduce the users to inexpensive and easy recycling/green alternatives. These ideas will be developed and presented to the community and the Mayor’s Office.
This will be an opportunity to understand the process of urban planning and the role of an architect within that process.
We will be working in a studio environment, sketching and building models to share our ideas.
Class times: Saturday’s on September 22nd, September 29th, October 6th and October 13th from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
There will be a community meeting in mid-September and a meeting with the Mayor’s office. Both dates will be determined in August.
Location: Historic Washington Hall.
Fee: $165 and includes all materials.
