Summer 2014

The design/build practicum, taught by Coleman Coker and Cisco Gomes, will develop two projects to serve the Austin Community. One will complete a multi-year effort to transform an alley into a piece of sustainable urban infrastructure in Austin. Students will work with a diverse community of residents to design and build critical ecological and social elements in an East Austin alley greening and place making demonstration project. Another is a mobile sustainability education and community engagement hub meant to empower underserved communities and stakeholder groups in the region to speak for themselves about community design and sustainability issues. Designed as an integrative planning, architecture, and landscape studio, key topics include the public design process, raising public consciousness about the value of design, collaboration between the design disciplines, the relationship between construction detailing and built form, and measuring public impacts of built solutions. (6 hours: CRP 685D, advanced studio: ARC 560 / ARC 696, LAR 696)
