Design Charrette

We're Designing a Community Kitchen

OACny partners with individuals who operate on a volunteer basis, in an effort to offer design solutions to our local communities. OACny will host a Design Charrette to generate design concepts for a Community Commercial Kitchen that can be used to employ, educate, promote and empower individuals and small businesses in underserved communities through nutritional classes, dynamic workshops and day-to-day operations that can assist community organizations, start-ups and incubators. 


Date:               Wednesday, 6/1/2016

Time:               7:00 - 7:15PM Snacks

                        7:15 - 9:00PM for the Design Charrette

Location:         Workrite Ergonomics
                        79 Madison Avenue
                        New York, NY 10016

Transit:           R train to 28th St
                       6 train to 29th St

This will be an energized design charrette where Community Commercial Kitchen designs will be explored that will offer multiple and dynamic use to the space, along with promoting efficiency and sustainability. Afterwards, we will have a sign-up sheet for attendees to continue their involvement on the project.


Dear OACny Volunteers: We look forward to seeing everyone on 6/01, Wednesday evening for the Design Charrette and have a few items to cover in advance. In order to have a productive evening, we ask that all attendees review below.
