2016-2017 PARTNER: LATENT DESIGN AND CHICAGO DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
Archeworks is partnering with Latent Design and the Chicago Department of Transportation on Activate! Chicago, a new citywide initiative to transform underutilized public plazas into cultural and economic catalysts. Students enrolled in Archeworks’ Postgraduate Certificate in Public Interest Design program will collaborate with private, public and community members to develop design concepts and installations to revitalize plaza sites located in the Woodlawn and Little Village neighborhoods. Using participatory and human-centered design methods, Archeworks will facilitate place-based community development that will be integrated into public space design systems and prototyped on the sites. The Certificate Program studio will be led by Katherine Darnstadt, Founder and Principal Architect of Latent Design.
