Building our Next Generations with Southwest Detroit
September 8, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
We invite Detroit Design Month Festival participants to learn, celebrate, and contribute to our approaches for honoring heritage amid neighborhood and youth-led design, construction, and development processes as we’ve applied them with Cody DIT High School students in the construction of Hope Park, and in other adaptations with local high school students from Southwest Detroit to develop local leadership with a construction industry relevant skill set.
Participants will experience an action-learning workshop from design to prototype and feasibility as we synthesize design thinking, systems thinking, Rapid Prototyping as seen ala Google Labs and processes adopted from the National Academy of Sciences to bridge from ideation and prototypes into feasible steps.
You will be able to navigate the core roles spanning development, land planning, architecture, and construction industries while learning how AGI Construction approaches its projects with priority for honoring the communities we work with.
