design/buildLAB is in Clifton Forge for the next three days to begin site demolition and to immerse ourselves in the culture. Clifton Forge, a once bustling rail town, is home to the C&O Heritage Center (and this unusually small train). Oh yeah, we did some some work too. Stay tuned for our adventures over the next few days.
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.
