As part of World Landscape Architecture Month in April, NCASLA is partnering with
Wake County Public Schools (WCPSS) to host their 4th Annual WCPSS Design Blitz.
Numerous Career & Technical Education (CTE) high school students, from across Wake County, will join design practitioners at CAM Raleigh in downtown Raleigh, for a charrette promoting collaboration and the design thinking process.
NCASLA is leveraging this year’s event to help raise awareness of the profession. We are excited for the opportunity to join forces with the City of Raleigh’s Dorothea Dix Park planning team, in developing this year’s prompt around the 308-acre Park. In addition to being a tangible introduction to site design, the Dix Park theme showcases community engagement, a transformative urban renewal project in the Raleigh cityscape and the impact our profession can have on quality of life, in shaping places where people live, work and play. The results of the charrette will be judged with prizes and will remain on display at CAM, as part of a pop-up exhibit, through April 16th.
WHERE: CAM Raleigh, 409 W Martin St, Raleigh, NC 27603
WHEN: Wednesday, April 10, 2019, 8AM – 1:30PM
