Please come and celebrate the completion of the Under the BQE, a community planning initiative. The site consists of 17 blocks of space on Park Avenue between Steuben and Navy Streets under the Brooklyn Queens Expressway in Brooklyn, New York. It stretches over multiple neighborhoods in Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, and Wallabout districts. The project included working with community members and managing design charettes to evaluate how to make the area more safe in terms of traffic and lighting and prepare recommendations for change.
The project team presentation will highlight the professional development skills gained through working on the project followed by an outline of the specific work that the team accomplished including the history of the site, community served, the workshop process and the final product, the Safety Plan.
This will be a great opportunity to hear the benefits of volunteering with Architecture for Humanity New York.
LucePlan will raffle two Birzi lamps. http://www.luceplan.com/Dynamic/Prodotti,intLangID,1,intCategoryID,2,int...
