Attention ACE students and alum! There will be a charette on Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 9 am-1 pm at Curie Metro High School to plan their new courtyard!
The Illinois Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), in partnership with the ACE Mentor Program and Chicago Public Schools (CPS) is in the early stages of designing a plaza at Curie Metropolitan High School.
The Curie Courtyard Project includes the redesign of an underutilized space for students in a school on the southwest
side of Chicago. The Curie Courtyard Project was selected because it presents a unique opportunity for both Curie and ACE Mentorship students to collaborate together and develop design solutions for a challenging space that is visibleto over 3,000 students, staff and visitors daily.
The Curie Courtyard Project will give students of the ACE Mentorship Program the chance to give back to the school
that has hosted past design workshops and events for their other projects over the years. ASLA volunteers will hold
multiple design charrettes, coordinate the efforts of volunteering partners throughout the
City, and educate the students about the landscape architecture process, from concept
development through installation.
