Join us for light refreshments and good company this Saturday at the Woodbury ACE Center Spring Design Studio Open House at the Bowtie Project. This event will showcase two completed and built projects from the Spring 2016 semester along with designs for possible future uses of the Bowtie Project.
Throughout the spring of 2016 undergraduate and graduate architecture students from the Woodbury Agency for Civic Engagement Center (ACE Center) engaged in a comprehensive urban/rural design studio that focused on long term site planning, and short-term temporary use for public campgrounds, educational, and recreational uses on the Bowtie in North East Los Angeles. Graduate Architecture students were involved in site planning and design proposals; undergraduate architecture students designed and constructed lightweight temporary structures on the parcel to facilitate camping activities. Students and faculty met periodically with staff from the California State Parks in order to obtain feedback and guidance on the designs and potential constructions. The primary goal of the studio was to explore the potential of low technology, high impact design interventions as a means of better understanding community needs along this future public park site.
