Calling All Creatives
April 9, 2010 —
The Department of Architecture and Interiors held the 3rd annual interdisciplinary Design Charrette, Urban Connection, from April 9th through April 12th. The Charrette is an opportunity for students from all majors at Drexel to collaborate on design projects of relevance to local and global communities. The 2010 Design Charrette challenged students to rethink public and urban transportation while taking into account differing modes of transport, universal accessibility, sustainable and energy efficient design, hubs for commuter transfers, site and community in the city of Philadelphia. Participants in Urban Connections interacted with notable participants from city and regional government offices as well as from the design field.
