National Building Museum

Fall 2014 CityVision Final Presentation

CityVision students present their development plans.This fall, participants from Takoma Education Campus and Raymond Education Campus explored Buzzard Point and proposed designs to create an active community gathering spot. Each studio researched the proposal to build a soccer stadium on Buzzard Point and determined if they thought it was the best plan for the neighborhood, residents, and the city. Based on their decision, they conducted interviews that helped them narrow in on specific design challenges they could solve. The final presentation is their chance to present and defend their ideas to the public.    

CityVision teaches the principles of city planning and architecture to show students that they can change the world around them and enact positive change through good design. As students explore neighborhoods, brainstorm solutions, and accomplish projects together, they learn the importance of teamwork, creative problem solving, and advocacy skills.
