Asheville DesignBuildStudio Summer Program

The AshevilleDesign Center is excited to announce our Summer 2014 Asheville DesignBuildStudio.
The ten week, hands-on, multi-disciplinary, educational program will take place amid the Blue Ridge Mountains in beautiful Asheville, NC. The DesignBuild Studio will run from June 2 to August 8, 2014.

This summer, ADC will be partnering with the YWCA of Asheville to build an outdoor classroom for children taking part in their after-school and summer camp programs. This summer’s DesignBuild Studio project offers students of all design disciplines—architecture, landscape architecture, planning, engineering, graphic design, interior design—an opportunity to significantly contribute to the design and delivery of this new community asset.

Students will encouraged to engage YWCA members and children, in addition to surrounding community members, to better inform their design process. Students will also have the opportunity to confer with the design team at Mathews Architecture, the firm responsible for the YWCA’s recent renovations and additions (and recipient of the North Carolina Chapter of the American Institute of Architects’ Firm of the Year Award in 2011).
