After a grueling day's work in the wind and rain, the design/buildLAB unwound at the Historic Jefferson Pools in Warm Springs. While all members of the lab donned swimwear, there were two sketchy nude dudes and a cowboy. Suffice it to say, we are using stock photography for this post. Aside from the expected bath house weirdness, the thermal springs were incredibly refreshing.
*side note - the problem with nude bathers is they invariably turn up at the table beside you for dinner... awkward indeed....
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.
