BOX CITY FOR KIDS!

Combining fun and learning, Design West employee Derek Christiansen volunteered with AIA Utah to help local  students at Canyon View Elementary in Davis School District build a city out of boxes. Derek and his team taught the kids about architecture and urban design while exploring creative thinking, design, city planning, historic preservation, construction and art.

The Box City For Kids! program culminated in an exhibition of box cities at the Salt Lake Public Library yesterday where Derek and his students displayed their Box City.  You can see excitement and enthusiasm for this fun, hands-on program in the faces of the students and spectators
