THE STORY:

Donate now to DOUBLE your donation! Thanks VIA Architecture, who is supporting our young architects with a matching grant of $2,000!

This Spring, Out of Site is launching a design/build project with 8 public high school interns, led by Architect Craig Hollow. Craig is a lead designer at Sagan + Piechota Architecture, an internationally certified Passive House Consultant, and an Out of Site faculty member. In 2012, Out of Site young architects designed and built San Francisco's first and only youth-led parklet. (Check out our time-lapse video of their full-scale model installation, and photos of the construction and completed project!)

Our young architects architects are ready to tackle another public works project this year to create a modular, mobile parklet that will activate the OMI neighborhood's commerical corridor along Ocean Avenue. Construction of the parklet will take place over the week of Spring Break, March 31 - April 4, 2014. (Thanks to iPlayBow for donating space for our architects to work in!)

Our young architects envision the parklet will:

• Improve the pedestrian experience on by creating a green public gathering space
• Beautify the corridor, attracting additional foot traffic to support a thriving commercial district
• Provide a workforce development project to youth wherein they can positively impact their city by working on a real-world design challenge

At Out of Site, it's important to us that our city-wide projects are aligned with real community needs and we are proud to have the support of Supervisor Yee, the Ocean Avenue Association and Ocean Avenue business owners and community members.

But, we need your help! Your donation will go directly to covering the cost of making this parklet a reality including building materials and stipends for our young architects. Or, if you are interested in making an in-kind donation of building materials or greenery, please contact our development director, Amy Díaz-Infante at amy@outofsite-sf.org

Here's what Youth Advisory Board member, Yma Airaghi, has to say about our next parklet project:

"This project is important to me, and everyone here at Out of Site, because our purpose is about making our community a better place through art. Through our classes here at Out of Site we not only encourage youth in their own personal means of a medium, but also how that medium can be put to use to convey bigger messages and change. Youth are constantly looking for job opportunities, so why not give them useful skills or a creative outlet in the process?"
