Team 1 / Week 11

Designing… Breaking up the Masterplan into Parcels…

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney (who obviously never met a cat)

Week 11 was very productive! We divided the site into parcels and started designing more details about each program. The teams were broken up into the dog park, the recreation center, the food truck area, the pavilion and green space which included the boardwalk along the river, and the skate park! The groups included a project manager that helped mediate between the different parcels. Groups worked together in order to create pathways that linked the entire site together… Great job collaborating!!

Breah’s Thoughts for this coming week:

We’re going digital!  Sketchup, Rhino, CAD, Revit, Photoshop, Illustrator, whatever skills you got, bring ‘em, because we only have 5 weeks left before we have to submit beautiful, thoughtfully designed boards for the CIRT competition.  And if you don’t know any computer design program, well then get ready to live, you’ll be learning something this week!
