New York...AGAIN!

One of our very own AIAS members who participated in the New York summer studio recently had the chance to go back!  Veronica Acosta shared a some information with us about her awesome experience:

This summer, Clemson University's architecture program had its first ever New York Summer Studio.  With the guidance of professor Dave Lee, 17 students worked closely with the Gowanus Canal Community Development Corporation in Brooklyn to do a rezoning of the entire neighborhood.  Each individual student also designed an Environmental Science Park and Research Center for the neighborhood.

Saturday, October 2nd, GreenHomeNYC hosted a block party in Gowanus to display the latest education, products, and visions for a greener New York City.  Clemson University contributed by presenting the research and proposals generated by the students this summer and received lots of positive feedback.

Clemson is doing great things! For more info on getting involved with fun things like this, contact AIAS at
