Opticos in Action: Plan Downtown Oakland
This week, Opticos is in the middle of a 10 day charrette process in Oakland, California as part of a dynamite team led by Dover Kohl. We kicked off the program on Monday with a hands-on design workshop, and are currently in the midst of the Open Design Studio portion of the charrette through Tuesday. The program includes a walking tour and open house on Saturday, and a presentation of work-in-progress next Wednesday.
The Plan Downtown Oakland project seeks to address a wide variety of needs in the city, from improved transit development to maintaining affordable housing in this increasingly popular area. The charrette process seeks public input and collaboration to make sure that the design and planning team creates solutions that benefit and serve the community.
