Winter/Spring 2023 Series:  

The Design Discovery Winter/Spring 2023 series will focus on developing fundamental architectural design skills and exploring the architecture of New York City. Each workshop focuses on a different core lesson that will help high school students explore their interest in architecture as well as hone skills that will be helpful for portfolio development. These workshops are open to all levels of architecture and art experience. Attend all four sessions, or just select the workshops that appeal most to you!   

Urban Planning: 

This workshop will introduce students to the design thinking and decision-making used in urban planning. Working with a set of planning and zoning guidelines, students will collaborate to design a model of an ideal urban neighborhood, from the overall layout of the area to the design of individual buildings and open spaces. Come roll up your sleeves and share your ideas for urban living at its best! 

All materials will be provided. Lunch will not be provided. All students will be dismissed for a lunch break from 12pm – 1pm. Students may bring lunch to eat at the Center if desired.
