Explore Student Designs for D.C. Neighborhoods
National Building Museum Teaches City Planning To Teens
CityVision Final Presentation: Learn more about District of Columbia Public School students’ vision for their city. Twenty-five students from Browne Education Campus and Takoma Education Campus learned about urban design and explored the city. With volunteers from the D.C. Office of Planning and the D.C. metro area, the students investigated underused areas in Columbia Heights, NoMa, and the Navy Yard. They present their plans for creating denser, more vibrant communities.
CityVision instills in students the idea that they can mold the world around them through good design. As students explore neighborhoods, brainstorm solutions, and accomplish projects together, they learn the importance of teamwork, problem solving, and advocacy skills.
