Draw, Design, Build! NYU Teams Up with the Center for Architecture for Family Programming

The Center for Architecture’s K-12 Education Department recently collaborated with several NYU departments to host a playground design contest for NYU families called “Draw, Design, Build.” The collaboration involved NYU’s Faculty Housing Division; The LaGuardia Studio, NYU’s digital design workspace and printing facility; and the Kimmel Center for University Life.  This multi-faceted program began with a workshop about playground design at the Center for Architecture on 03.25.17. After being inspired by images of some of New York’s most unique playgrounds, children were asked to brainstorm and imagine what their dream playground would look like and then create a collage of their ideal play area. The artworks created by the children were then taken to the designers at LaGuardia Studio, where top projects were transformed into 3D-printed sculptures. The program culminated in an awards ceremony on 05.22.17, recognizing the children for their efforts, alongside an exhibition of their collages and the final 3D-printed sculptures of the winning designs at the Kimmel Center. The awards included categories such as “Best Theme,” which was awarded to a playground design with a sea life theme, realized in seashell-shaped swings, a dolphin fountain, and a slide with shark fins running down its length; and “Most Shovel-Ready” to a project that included instructions complete with materials and measurements.  Read More
