Day 1: (Re)Housing the American Dream: a Message from the Future

Day 1

The Blueprint: What will America Look like 50 years from now? Where will you be 50 years from now? What will the American Dream look like in 2067?

The Materials: pen, paper, markers, pencils, cardboard, tape, x-acto knives, rulers, paint

The Tools: writing, imagination, critical thinking, cutting, pasting, decorating, dreaming, math, running on a field of grass

The Architecture: In the morning, we wrote individually where we would be 50 years from now and discussed what America and the American Dream might look like in 2067. We identified potential issues, small and major concerns, and hope for a better future. Conjuring up disaster scenarios due to climate change, everyone designed houses and living structures for shelter and protection in the future.
