Community Engagement

Graduate Architecture and Urban Design students and faculty actively participate in local and international communities in projects focused on K-12 education, community and environmental justice, and advancements in design, imaging, and fabrication technologies.

Constituencies for these projects often span a range of generations as our education programs do; they may extend well into the realms of very concrete issues of the environment as imaging and development projects. They may engage a larger community of citizens and professionals in a global dialogue and collaboration on questions of water and contemporary modes of urbanization as part of our International programs. Collectively, the overlap and resonance of these varied constituencies contributes to a more active and integral participation of architecture in its many communities.

K-12 RAD

The project proposed by Pratt’s faculty, Alexandra Barker and Olivia Vien, as an action-research study examined the impact of bringing this combinatorial way of thinking and making to high school students and involved observation, questionnaire/survey, and analysis of the work produced by high school students.
