A contingent of our studio has been feverishly applying Hydro-Stop, a waterproofing coating, to the panels that will become the amphitheatre's roof. Four coats of the paint-on substance are required for each panel. Hydro-Stop generously donated all the material, a huge relief to our budgeting committee. For the next several weeks, we will be reminded of this generosity as we continually attempt to de-waterproof our skin and clothing.
The design/buildLAB at Virginia Tech is a Project Based Experiential Learning program focused on the research, development and implementation of innovative construction methods and architectural designs. Students collaborate with local communities and industry experts to conceive and realize built architecture projects that are both educational and charitable in nature. The blog is run by design/buildLAB students, who are currently designing and building a pedestrian bridge in Clifton Forge, VA.
