JSA often works with the ACE Center (Agency of Civic Engagement) at Woodbury University. Below are photos of last semester’s studio work:
THE BOWTIE PROJECT
The ACE architecture studio, in collaboration with California State Parks and Clockshop has built several structures on the grounds of the Bowtie, a nineteen-acre site adjacent to the LA River. This site is slated to become a permanent State Park for Los Angeles. Clockshop manages cultural programming that is open to the public during the lengthy planning process required to implement this public infrastructure. These projects by Woodbury students are used during campout events, film presentations, poetry readings, and other cultural events open to the public.
The Outdoor Classroom for John Muir Middle School
Architecture students designed and built a classroom on the campus of the John Muir Middle School in Burbank, CA. This design gives form to this leftover space and creates a functional classroom under the canopy of trees. Plastic wood is used in non-conventional ways to create textures and patterns.
