Blog Pick :: Urban DesignBuild Blog

In this full scale mock-up session, students tested connection points,
material strength, and spatial potential of their nomadic canopies.

BAC instructor Kyle Sturgeon et al. has been blogging for a little over a year with narrative, photo galleries, and general information on the Urban designBUILD Program, an advanced architectural workshop at the BAC. The program's underlying goals are:

* lead students in HANDS-ON construction combined with a design studio education in order to discover new intersections between design and fabrication.

* foster a COLLABORATIVE studio environment such that students engage more fully in a dialogue with their peers, practitioners, context and communities.

* implement architecture, design and the making of space to catalyze POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE and stewardship of our built environment.
