This past Friday, we hosted the second community design presentation of the fieldhouse to be built for the Clifton Forge Little League this spring. There we presented eight different schemes for the layout of the master plan of the site, as well as architectural designs of the fieldhouse.
Community members and participants of the league of all ages came out for the presentation at the Clifton Forge Fire House and gave their feedback to the eight designs presented.
The various perspectives and feedback from the community members that attended was very valuable and will help us as we progress toward a final design.
From here, we will recognize similar architectural ideas between the projects and use the feedback and ideas given by the community to collaborate on three more schemes. From these three schemes, the entire studio will work toward a final design that will be presented to the community later this semester!
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.
