The Steel Yard is preparing to amp-up its course offerings and magnify event spaces in a way that is true to its scrappy aesthetic and bootstrap community approach! Join Architect Christine M. West, AIA and Albert Garcia, AIA and Steel Yard Director Howie Sneider as they discuss the design process and approach taken to achieve high-impact results that maximize investments and will allow the industrial arts center to enormously expands its programming. Renovation will include shop improvements, the addition of a welcome center, and sculptural solar paneling planned for the site’s original gantry system.
There is a widely acknowledged housing crisis in the US today: workers and young families are finding it increasingly difficult to find housing they can afford that suits their needs. Wages have not kept pace with housing costs, and not enough new housing has been developed to meet growing demand.
LOCATION: The Steel Yard, 27 Sims Ave, Providence, RI 02909
COST: $10 (includes lunch)
AIA Rhode Island is excited to partner with DesignXRI on the organization of this program for Design Week RI 2018.
