School of Architecture and Allied Arts

designBridge is a student organization linking Allied Arts and Architecture with the surrounding community offering weekend design charrettes, full design development services and design-build services to clients. The focus is to bring the resources and energy that students have to communities and organizations that can use our help. designBridge focuses on projects that have a mutual benefit to design students and to the community. They seek projects and clients that share a commitment to sustainable design and green building practices.

Each project has a UO faculty member, a project manager, and depending on the size may include a specific design leader, and a build leader to make sure the project meets the client's goals. The entire process usually covers multiple academic terms. designBridge is a national award winning program, with literally hundreds of voluntary students hours devoted to community projects.
