National Building Museum’s CityVision

I am volunteering with the National Building Museum’s CityVision helping with the current projects based around Anacostia.

Now in its seventeenth year, CityVision is an award-winning outreach program that uses design as a framework to teach District of Columbia public school students how to become active participants in shaping their communities. Through extensive fieldwork and careful mentoring at the National Building Museum, students identify needs and propose solutions designed to help local neighborhoods.

The CityVision students are taking on the role of urban planners and architects to propose redevelopment ideas for three different sites in Anacostia located at Poplar Point, the Metro station, and the parking lot at the corner of MLK and Howard Road. Students are to propose new buildings that meet the needs of and improves the community. Their final project is to present their research and design ideas in a formal presentation through models and a PowerPoint.
