 BRT 2.0

CAF has opened an exhibition, “Bus Rapid Transit: Next Stop, Chicago” which explains the benefits of BRT, how it will impact Chicago, and where the initial routes have been planned to go. For this Saturday in the Studio we will design a BRT station using an actual site somewhere in Chicago! We will use the exhibit as part of our analysis and get help from those who have had a hand in bringing BRT here!

Professionals will be invited to mentor CAF Teens while working on projects throughout the morning, and then be available to present the work they do and answer questions for both teens and their parents. Join us to learn more about the vital role engineers and contractors play daily in helping architects create the built environment around us.
