Up Lab Summer Meetings: Sketch & Ride

Our meetings usually take place indoors. This summer we’re trying something new: we’re bringing our meetings to the streets, where our intervention as architects, designers, artists, activists, environmentalists, professionals, students, children, adults, teachers, aliens, bums, etc in solving urban issues may be welcome, or in the least, brought to awareness.

The Concept:
The idea is to “Sketch & Ride”. We’ll be riding our bikes through different neighborhoods of Miami in order to observe, record, sketch, photograph, discuss, etc. key architectural elements featured in the AIA Miami Architecture guide as well as interesting architectural feats usually overlooked by such guides.

The Rides:
We have selected 4 routes, in 4 different neighborhoods and these will be related to 4 themes: Open Spaces, Education, Housing, and Art at the Urban Scale.

How Do I Ride?
Check out the itinerary and meet us in the beginning, middle or end of the ride. Get your bikes, rent one (for $5 at Scoot Skate & Bike – 1800 Biscayne Blvd) , borrow one, ride your skateboard, etc. Bring your sketch pads, pencils, or camera. Come out and observe Miami from a different perspective.
