National Building Museum

CityVision Fall 2009 Final Presentation
Great Hall

During the fall 2009 CityVision semester, twenty-four students from Browne Education Campus and Lincoln Middle School at Columbia Heights Education Campus have planned their designs for a Visitors’ Center to the White House. In collaboration with the National Capital Planning Commission, the National Building Museum challenged three teams to explore their sites, interview tourists and government officials, and think creatively about design. On January 8th, the students will explain their creative process and how their designs improve the experience of visitors to the White House.

Refreshments will be served.

Through design basics and extensive fieldwork, CityVision instills in students that they can mold the world around them and enact positive change in their lives and the lives of others through good design. As students explore building sites, brainstorm solutions and accomplish projects together, they learn the importance of teamwork, problem solving and advocacy skills.
