CPeLevated was a student project that worked in conjunction with The MacArthur Foundation, Digital Youth Network, and the Chicago Public Library. The project’s focus was designing a multimedia, multipurpose center ( YouMedia space) for teenagers at Harold Washington Library in downtown Chicago. The design of this new YouMedia space involved taking input from a wide range of stake holders (teenagers, mentors, librarians, and facility managers) as well as taking into account potential curriculum and library use-cases. Over the course of 15 weeks we developed and iterated a final design for the space. This design included a physical layout, contents for the space (furniture, equipment, tools), and visual color scheme and associated branding.
