Week 2 –
The focus of this meeting was creating a site analysis for the proposed bridge idea at Wolf Point. A short presentation was held to discuss the kinds of things that Architects and Engineers look for when creating a site analysis. Students were then given aerial maps of the site and worked in teams to create their own site analyses.
The teams worked hard and took into consideration foot traffic, design elements of surrounding buildings, and who will be ultimately be using the bridge. Students were encouraged to “think outside the box” in their site analyses. Examples of some the site analyses are included below.
Mentors were impressed by the ideas that were proposed by the students. Overall, students walked away with a stronger vision of their bridge concept. Also, the students and mentors played a fun game of “What am I?” with different building related objects and places!
