During her summer position at Juxtaposition, Zoe engaged in a variety of activities in North Minneapolis, from door knocking to attending community meetings, and helped create materials and boards to support Juxtaposition initiatives. She compiled community feedback about the proposed First Avenue venue and economic opportunities for small business owners for future Upper Harbor Terminal development.
She especially enjoyed working with the teenage apprentices at Juxtaposition, who were working renderings for different community projects, including the Upper Harbor Terminal and a pocket park on the Juxtaposition campus. “It was great to see design in the hands of such young people, and how they used Photoshop to come up with their own ideas and to begin exploring design.”
