Thank you, readers, for making our blog the second most viewed blog on Archinect! We appreciate your interest in the Masonic Amphitheater Project and are excited to share our journey with the School for Autism with so many readers!
The spring semester has begun and we are all back in studio, ready to finish up our projects for the School for Autism. This past week was dedicated to the Third Year Competition- all of the third year architecture students here at Virginia Tech competed to create a design for a visitor's center for the Warm Springs Natural Preserve in Bath county, Virginia. The winners will be announced on Wednesday at 4pm.
While we wait for the final results of the competition, we're planning out our schedule for this semester. Once we present our work on the School for Autism to the town of Clifton Forge and the Shenandoah Autism Center, we will begin designing and building a pedestrian footbridge on the amphitheater site.
Keep checking in for the details about the projects!
The Virginia Tech design/buildLAB 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 designing and building a fieldhouse for the Clifton Forge Little League.
