Design to Construction - Chicago ACE Student Design Build Workshop LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In 2010, ACE Chicago and CPS launched a highly successful Design-Build program; a summer studio providing hands-on experience working with a real client on a real project for Chicago high school students. The program introduces our students to a real world design problem and asks them to respond with a creative design solution. And then we build it!

The annual summer workshop is free to ACE students, who also receive a college/university scholarship at the end of the program. It is a exciting and challenging opportunity for students who have completed one year of the ACE after-school program. Our summer studio is a valuable extension of the ACE Program, providing additional mentorship and career exposure to our most motivated students. The Design Build Workshop is a unique summer apprenticeship program that immerses students in a 7-week hands-on community design project. The student team of up to 15 high-school students and 2 or more college students will be led by working and licensed professionals in Architecture, Engineering and Construction Management. Over the course of the program the students will engage with a real client, a real design problem and real budget, and will be asked to think critically and to express creative design solutions. The summer begins with a community design event in late June, and culminates in August with a final student presentation and ribbon cutting, unveiling the built project!

This seminar will be an overview of the last few several projects and teams.
