John Hay High School of Architecture and Design Students Present Urban Design Plans

Fourteen students from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District at John Hay High School of Architecture and Design 2016 Extended School Year program participated in an Urban Design Lab workshop, which provided students an opportunity to investigate how urban planning and design can become a means to investigating their community. Through the students’ prepared PowerPoint presentations in front of an Urban Design Panel and their mentors, they were able to showcase their learning experiences, the concepts they explored, and the processes of planning as a means to energize, engage and create equity within the community. Upon completion of their two-week course, students will have the opportunity to gain hands on experience in identifying social issues impacting Cleveland’s community and developing a strategy for producing their own responses. In addition, the impact of this year’s 2016 Extended School Year program could also help guide students to make positive career choices and expose them to understanding the intricate details of building an architecture portfolio.
