Even though summer is still in full swing, the new class of students in the MFA in Applied Craft Design program are already working at full speed. Led by Butch Anthony and Jack Sanders, the students have embarked on a two week project which will culminate in a public endeavor. In true design build fashion, the new students are responsible for all aspects of the project from conception, to designing models, to laboriously building the final pieces. This year’s Design Build is focusing on creating a public bike repair show and community hub for a park in North Portland.
Check in on their progress (they only have two weeks to finish!) on the ACD blog.
Last year, AC+D students installed a library and reading center at the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center. You can read all about the project here.
