PNI – Environmental design

The Program

Elementary & Secondary in Indigenous communities

This program provides students with the opportunity to explore the field of environmental design, which undertakes to impact the living spaces of citizens by putting environmental and social concerns at the heart of its practice. Students design and carry out an environmental design project in order to create a legacy for both their school and neighbourhood communities. Throughout the process, students conduct an environmental analysis as well as a public consultation. They then design their project through to 2D and 3D drawings, whether by hand or with a computer, as well as models and photomontages, which will ultimately lead to the actual construction of the project.
