Lawrence Technological University’s College of Architecture and Design + Marburger STEM Center have partnered with Detroit’s Denby High School to engage students in a critically driven studio program focused on the idea of community – what it was, what it is and how it can be shaped by design.
The studio – in its fourth year – calls for students to understand critical research methodology and implement design thinking principles. Centered on self-identified community liabilities, the students will highlight community through the lens of design. Each student will conduct research, critically analyze data and collect his or her own experiences to formulate a design that addresses their issue on a defined site. Using these resources, students will create design interventions that address urban liabilities that are not only important to Detroit - but are also globally relevant.
