Limited Capacity seats available

We look to present the program, outcomes and methodology employed in a secondary architectural education program launched by Lawrence Technological University in partnership with Detroit Future City, the Education Achievement Authority of Michigan and other local partnerships. This program, housed at Edwin Denby High School of Detroit’s northeast community, focuses on teaching students architectural values in order to empower them to become active members of their local community. The Denby neighborhood deals with issues ranging from vacancy, blight, crime, poverty, etc. It is with this in mind that the program takes a local focus; requiring students to actively address these issues from a social, political and economic point of view. This seminar presentation will cover general syllabus/ project outlines, teaching methodologies, community engagement and student work (presented by a Denby student). Finally we will look at this partnership’s progress and outcomes since its inception in February 2014, in order to share lessons learned.
