Title: Today for Tomorrow
Author: Anderson, Christopher
Abstract: Educating today’s children about the facts of sustainable awareness is essential to reach the maximum potential in order to provide for both the environment and future populations. In today’s world, children seem to hold a hierarchy in which technological advancements in computers and video games reign dominantly over recreation and the outdoor natural environment. The problem is, that as we move through this digital revolution, children are becoming more and more disconnected from the offerings that our planet provides. In order for our existence to flourish, it is important for today’s youth to become more environmentally aware of their actions. This design and research project focuses on the creation of an institute for children that bears a strong emphasis on the education of sustainable behaviors. The location for this project is on Nicollet Island, Northeast of Minneapolis, MN, where it will serve as an educational facility for the underprivileged youth of the area. The total square footage of the project will range between 12,000-20,000 square feet with multiple levels. The goal for this project is to create a rich environment that provides the proper education behind the sustainability of the environment as a whole as well as how to better one’s own personal existence.
