2009 Architecture By Children Program
Architecture By Children 2009:
TRANSPORTATION STATION is a theme ABC introduced in 2001. The new 2009 project will focus attention on issues surrounding the inevitable shift from individual automotive travel to mass-transit and the kinds of places needed in Cincinnati to help people get to where they need to go without a car. Students will be presented a map of the Cincinnati region, showing the proposed Light Rail, bus and streetcar systems. The students’ task is to identify a location, a “node,” in their neighborhood where people will go to connect to the system. The “node” may land at a place on the path of the light rail or bus, or, students will decide how to get to the nearest point on the system from where they are. Sustainable [Green] design, which was introduced in 2007, will again be an integral component of the design problem.
Transportation Station design problem materials and classroom resources may be ordered upon request. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and availability.
