[3rd] Year Studio Update
March 2, 2015 § Leave a comment
Jo Leimenstoll and Cat French’s [3rd] year studio spent the first half of the semester designing parklets for downtown Greensboro. A growing movement in many cities, parklets are spaces that reclaim parking spaces and transform them into public extensions of the sidewalk. Students in the studio are each designing a hypothetical parklet to occupy the street in front of one of two locations: Triad Stage or Scuppernong Books, both located on Elm Street in downtown Greensboro. After meeting with local business owners, representatives of the city of Greensboro, and Downtown Greensboro Incorporated, students spent several weeks developing concepts, schematic designs, and, finally, a complete design proposal. We are excited to announce that on Tuesday, March 3 at 8:45 a.m. our studio will be holding an open critique with guests from several Greensboro organizations.
