Week 2 the students brainstormed in groups and came up with different designs for the site. They faced challenges when they tried to come up with the functionality of the site. Ultimately they came to a general consensus of which components they would be implementing. Structural Engineer, Steven Baldridge, came to visit and give a presentation on of his experiences in the field and projects he’s worked on. Steven gave the students guidance on how to properly build structures according to safety standards. Using this knowledge they modified their designs then came together to create a master site plan. They integrated major components including rainwater collection, a multipurpose outdoor classroom, an accessible entrance and a garden. They ended the week with beginning their detailed components of their designs.
