[4th] year Studio Project: Community-Engaged Design
February 2, 2014 § Leave a comment
Travis Hicks’ [4th] year studio received the assignment to solve a problem in the community or society through design. Each group or individual working on the project is required to make contact with a community partner that can help them reach their goals. Examples of proposed projects include the renovation of houses for Habitat for Humanity, community gardens to eradicate food deserts, tiny house communities to help the homeless population, and even a family shelter in Haiti to help lower the number of orphaned children. Each student was given the opportunity to design whatever was important to them and to take the project as far as it can go, which could mean seeing some of these projects through to the built stage. After the final project proposals were made on Friday, January 31st, the next review is scheduled for Friday, March 7th from 1-4pm. Stay tuned for more of what Travis’ [4th] years will be doing this semester!
