Checking the Community Pulse

Today we presented our final design direction for the community pavilion project. This event was open to community members, the parks conservancy, and other collaborators. The studio worked all weekend synthesizing a design that was a culmination of all four individual projects. Through our discussion we learned what the participants liked, and what more they wanted. After the discussion the group spent an hour and a half talking about how we take the critique and apply it to the design. Recognizing the size and scope of the pavilion was key to understanding what we are dealing with.  Storage and seating are going to provide us opportunities to make this structure unique and flexible, a lot of concern from the public was about how tools will be stored, the size of the storage, and the comfort and flexibility of the seating.  Our next step is to produce construction documents and mock ups of key parts of the structure.  We have a busy week ahead so stay tuned!
