Setting the Groundwork

Our first design iteration meeting with our client on Monday went well.  People from the Charleston Parks Conservancy, the City of Charleston departments, and even community members that live in West Ashley attended. Great feedback was given to all seven teams discussing their designs.

Moving forward, we will now be picking aspects of everyone’s designs that we enjoyed. Many aspects like path, motion, movement, stopping points, vegetation, innovation, and structure will be used to create one cohesive design that we will build by the end of the semester.

Our next step in the process is to get our site surveyed so we can have accurate topography to work off of in our drawings. For architects and the built environment, a site survey sets the groundwork for design. Some of us have surveyed before, but many of us haven’t so we are all eager to get out to the site tomorrow to see how it’s done from a professional.
