Design Charrette

On Monday April 5th, the design students took advantage of the beautiful weather and participated in a 2 hour long charrette in the courtyard of the EUC. The students worked diligently within their 'pen pal' groups to design a residential floor layout for Unity Village. The challenge was to include 8 units with a square footage between 850 to 900 sq ft. Using both design skills and geometry skills the students worked to develop a series of functional floor plans. After two rounds of voting, a winner was decided upon...
