HKS Detroit charrette includes two Lawrence Tech students
Wednesday, March 30th, 2011
Two Lawrence Tech architecture students, Lamont Edwards and Priya Iyer participated in the 2011 HKS Detroit Design Fellowship that ran from March 1-4 at the architecture firm’s offices in Northville. The purpose of the intense, three-day charrette was to bring together emerging professionals, students, and community representatives to solve challenges and positively affect Detroit through design.
This year the focus was on HATCH, a Hamtramck art collective. The fellows collaborated on the conceptual design of the former Hamtramck Police Station. See a recent article about the presentation in the Hamtramck Review.
A total of six fellows were selected to participate from four schools: Lawrence Tech, Cranbrook, the University of Michigan, and the University of Detroit Mercy. This year’s juror panel included Lawrence Tech alumnus Mark Nickita of Archive Design Studio in Detroit and Lawrence Tech Assistant Professor Philip Plowright.
