“Be A Better Roof”

With the final design review being only 6 days away, everybody in Studio V has been working hard at developing a single, strong scheme to present to the Charleston Park Conservancy now that we are working together as a studio. In order to better prepare for our next client meeting we have decided to break [...]

It is time for a charrette

Studio Day 4 is about to commence. Everyone has dived heavily into research on the history of the Wagner Terrace Community, site analysis, working gardens, and precedent studies. The exciting part about the next couple of days is that we all get to come together and present all of our findings to the group. It [...]

The project is progressing rapidly now and it won't be long until the pavilion will be ready for action! Because all the pieces are prefabricated, we should be able to [...]

Progression
