Lowline: Young Designers Program

Lowline: Young Designers Program

We partnered with the Lowline team to launch a unique community engagement initiative called the Young Designers Program (YDP), which brings Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education and urban planning programming to local schools and community organizations.

From there, we curated an exhibit and experience that supported the YDP students' imaginative models of the Lowline—an abandoned trolly station-turned community garden. The experiences engaged parents, teachers, friends and the larger LES community.
