Students Engage with Local Community Through Kentucky Studio

University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky

The inaugural year of the PCI Concrete Studio at the University of Kentucky College of Design was one of many challenges but amazing opportunities. The PCI Concrete Studio was the only upper-level studio that met in person throughout the Fall and Spring semesters; thanks to the generous partnership with the PCI Foundation and Gate Precast (Winchester, KY), we were able to offer a hands-on experience of designing and making that the students would have otherwise missed out on due to the global pandemic. Our community embedded studio in Winchester, KY provided a critical opportunity for students to engage with a local community and partners while designing in precast concrete.
