Design Layout

The class spent last Wednesday’s studio time at Burke Park, laying out the design. Some representatives from the Parks and Recreation department met us there and helped us figure out where there were existing constraints like water lines, property lines and fiber optics cables. The plan needed to be massaged into place around the constraints introduced by Parks and Rec, and we wound up with a classroom space near the path and wetlands with fantastic views.
