Design Build

Be a part of the launch of this exciting pilot pathway beginning Spring '22!  Ever wonder how cities are planned, parks and communities are designed, and buildings are built?  Explore the wonders of built environments and the natural world in the Design Build pathway at Futures Lab! 

Learners will focus on the fundamentals of design theory, architectural hand-drafting skills, and proper safety precautions.  After learning how to conceptualize and design small buildings and parks, they'll research how to build them!  Students will take field trips to construction sites and design firm studios to help inform their own builds.
