CSU landscape architecture students show off ideas for local ‘microspaces’ Dec. 7

The Downtown Development Authority and the Urban Lab are hosting an event on Friday, Dec. 7, to provide senior landscape architecture students at CSU with the opportunity to showcase their ideas and designs for Fort Collins’ various “microspaces” in Old Town — areas like alleys, traffic islands and street medians that are underutilized and neglected.

Urban Lab logoThe event, which is open to the public, will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in The Exchange at 216 N. College Ave., Suite 110.

Attendees are welcome to talk to the students about their ideas and provide feedback about the designs and their potential.

The Urban Lab, based in CSU’s Institute for the Built Environment, was created as a working group of UniverCity, an organization formed to create positive community initiatives. The goal of the Urban Lab is to bring citizens, professionals, the city and the University together to facilitate optimal design and creative solutions for a vibrant & healthy community. Created by engaged citizens, the Urban Lab is committed to smart and innovative development and redevelopment, and is a place for citizens, students, and professionals to create solutions for a vibrant and healthy community.
