Design Showcase: Student-Designed Housing Solutions

Thursday, December 14, 2017
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Museum Auditorium


How do planners design housing for different populations in Washington, D.C.? Students in the CityVision program from Takoma Education Campus and School Without Walls at Francis Stevens researched local demographics and living needs and visited housing examples across the city. Working in studio teams and with feedback from developers at Forest City DC, the students proposed a building for the Penn Quarter neighborhood to meet the increasing housing needs of the neighborhood. Celebrate their semester of work and talk with these young designers about their ideas to increase the livability of Washington, D.C.
