Expanding how students of color are educated and engaged around design. The mission of the Urban Studio is “to advance design thinking for equitable + sustainable urbanism.” As designers of color working in communities of color, our goal is simple, to green cities for all people.
The Studio DC initiative is working to engage high school students in the transformative power of design-thinking. Students will become experts in water quality issues impacting their family, neighbors, and friends. The multi-age, interdisciplinary program is led by design professionals, college students of design, and a variety of volunteer professionals that are all working toward creating a more sustainable and equitable city.
The focus of the Studio Digital initiative is to leverage partnerships with firms and allied organizations to ensure the best technological practices are available to minority firms and communities in relation to the profession of Landscape Architecture. Studio Digital aspires to create a large open-source network of knowledge to help pioneer the use of technology in the field of Landscape Architecture.
To cultivate the next generation of leaders in urban planning and landscape architecture, the Studio South Central initiative launched an urban sustainability youth leadership program for high school students in South Central Los Angeles. Participants learn what it means to have a community at the center of design in addressing the legacies of environmental injustice and redesigning their own community.
