This week Mentor Carrie presented about project scheduling while students enjoyed some pizza! ? Also, Mentor Danny introduced to the students quick imagery to show how an architect might go about treating the old and new together – not necessarily treating this project as a preservation but as a restoration or rehabilitation- one where the existing building is allowed to be somewhat manipulated by the new and vice versa.
The groups broke out to continue developing designs and coordinating materials, ideas, and information. New building needed to reconsider the giant building that was created by putting the building behind and canteliebering over the old building. New and Old building groups needed to collaborate and compromise in order to reconfigure the program to work better for both parts of the building – now conceived as one. The program division was settled and now both groups can move forward with an appropriate amount of program. Construction and Structural groups will also be able to nail down some details and numbers for the new design. At the conclusion of the meeting, SITE & NEW BUILDING presented their work.
