Design Museum Boston and SEGD present Summer Charette, your chance to get off the grid, meet other designers and get your creative juices flowing. Participants will be assigned a team at the beginning of the event. You’ll have a chance to check out the space and mingle a bit before getting down to business. Each team will be given a station to brainstorm and build conceptual models. Tools and materials will be provided but feel free to bring sample materials to share.

The challenge: Transform the second floor of 12 Channel St. from blank canvas into creative workspace. The second floor is currently an open plan industrial space with little to no indication of its creative tenants when you walk off the elevator. Help envision how to create a sense of place for the entire floor and transform it into flexible workspace for young creatives. Results to be featured on Design Museum Boston website. Models will be on exhibit at 12 Channel Street.
