my wish for design education for america's youth.

I popped into the Architecture and Design Education Network (A+DEN) Conference last week at the Chicago Architecture Foundation. for Maurice Cox' brainstorm on a national design initiative funded by the NEA...he kicked it off with us all making a wish for america's youth for design education.

i wish...that through design, America's youth had the opportunity to influence real-world situations and spaces for the better...and that design gives them the power to voice their opinions, demonstrate leadership and express their identity.
