The FREEDOM BY DESIGN program of the AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS (AIAS) at The ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY is a group of architecture students devoted to advancing design through volunteering in the community.
We are currently partnering with residents of the Bayview Commons Affordable Housing Building in the Bayview district of San Francisco, CA. The building has an open courtyard that’s used as a kid’s play area, and as a community space for residents in the building.
We’ve been working with the residents and their children to come up with ideas to renovate and revitalize this space, and have decided to plant a vegetable and native plant garden and create a vibrant mural to enliven the space.
We're looking for donations of any size to help us realize this goal and to purchase planting material and paint for a weekend workshop where we will be working alongside residents to beautify their courtyard.
We thank you in advance for your support! We believe this is a great project and an important step in cultivating a spirit of making and advocacy in our future practice as Architects.
