Design Build 2012 Video


The Community Cycling Center releases a video about the bike repair hub in New Columbia, constructed by AC+D students.

The Community Cycling Center, who partnered with the MFA in Applied Craft and Design (AC+D) program for the 2012 Design Build Project, just released a video documenting the rigorous, jam-packed, fast-paced, ten-day design process. Each year, incoming AC+D students spend two weeks designing, and then building, a project for a community stakeholder. The projects is meant to “introduce students to each other, to iterative making, and to a stakeholder driven design process.” This year, students worked with and alongside community members in the North Portland neighborhood of New Columbia to build a community bike hub and repair shop.

Watch below for a “behind-the-scenes look at some of the people and partnerships involved in transforming a vacant lot in the New Columbia neighborhood in Portland, OR into a Bicycle Repair Hub, a gathering spot for weekly rides, safety workshops, and bike repairs.”

You can read more about the project here, on UNTITLED.
