This spring, Youth Art Exchange architecture interns worked with architecture faculty member Craig Hollow to create the Ocean Avenue Mobile Parklet, the first of its kind in San Francisco. These public high school students designed and built the parklet in collaboration with the Ocean Avenue Association and San Francisco Pavement to Parks.
For 6 months at each location, the parklet will travel and be shared along the Ocean Avenue commercial corridor to encourage public gathering and commerce while beautifying the neighborhood.
Design/build projects are at the core of Youth Art Exchange’s Architecture + Public Art discipline, one of our flagship program offerings. For these project, students are led by our faculty through designing, modeling, presenting to community and design panels, and finally building. From architectural sketches to drills and hammers, our students really are the designers and builders.
