Miami University Center for Engagement Summer Workshop May 20th - June 27th, 2015
Join us for a six-week design/build experience. Work with a non-profit client on a community design initiative. Students will: redesign and/or renovate buildings in a nationally recognized historic district, interact with consultants, code officials, and materials suppliers, develop detailing, construction and project management skills. The design/build studio is located in Over-the-Rhine, an inner-city neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio that is marked by extremes of gentrification and homelessness. The purpose of the workshop is to create a well-rounded experience where students engage with the community on many levels - not just as design advocates, but as neighbors. Student's enrolled in the six week workshop will be "In Residency" and live in apartments provided by our non-profit partner, Over-the-Rhine Community Housing. This studio workshop provides six (6) semester credit hours to the student. More information.
