Imagining a better, safer community
Architects worked with students and adults to imagine better, safer communities and schools at Chicago Ideas Week. Architects lead two separate design-based public workshops: one for students and another for adults. Both were held at Gensler’s Chicago office, where groups spent a few hours of their day looking critically at the world around them to prioritize pressing issues faced by communities and build a path forward using design thinking. Through these workshops, students and adults were encouraged to explore their own power in the built environment, to discover ownership and civic engagement in different ways.
