Ever wonder what was involved in being an architect with real clients? Want to learn how to design something that will meet a real need in the Providence community? DownCity Designers will work together to build a new structure to improve the play yard of Young Woods Elementary School in Providence. In the fall, students investigated and created a design solution for the Young Woods play yard. In this session, we will turn their vision into a reality! While working to create a new community space, you'll learn how to use power tools and basic wood construction techniques to build an outdoor classroom for Young Woods Elementary.
