DownCity Designers: Build Studio
ACN1011
DownCity Designers: Build Studio will teach you how to bring your designs to life and build structures using basic power tools and construction techniques. Students will work together to build an installation designed by students in the Fall Design Studio that improves a public space in Providence like a park, school, or playground. Participants in DownCity Designers will finalize construction documents, prepare the site for construction, and will fabricate and install their project as a permanent contribution to a public space in Providence. This is a great class for anyone interested in architecture, design, construction, or community service. No previous construction skills are necessary because you can learn it all with us! STEM Pathway: In order to fabricate structurally sound amenities, our young designers will engage in complex engineering tasks. They will be asked to conduct extensive site research, including mapping, interviews, and observations, as they define the criteria and constraints of a design problem in order to ensure a successful solution. In order to arrive at their final construction techniques and select appropriate materials and hardware, our students must evaluate competing solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem. This process includes defining a set of project criteria based on client interviews and relevant building code, then evaluating how well each small group’s design concept matches those criteria through peer presentations, client reviews, and conversations with a structural engineer. Finally, our students create multiple prototypes to test their design concepts and work with a professional structural engineer who will review their drawings and models and offer feedback on structural integrity. Related Career Fields: Architecture, design, construction, pre-engineering, mathematics Transportation: RIPTA bus passes will be available to students the first day of class to support student travel to and from the ACN class.
