On Monday we had the opportunity to present our most recent iterations of our project to the community of Clifton Forge in Clifton Forge! At this point in the process we had consolidated into groups and had begun to address the architecture of the project. The presentation allowed for a good dialog between concerned members of the community and the students.
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.
