The design/buildLAB hosted the first design presentation of the fieldhouse this past week for the board members of the Clifton Forge Little League. Each student presented a design of the filedhouse and master plan of the site.
The board members offered feedback as to what design aspects they found interesting and what would make the facilities more functional for the little league. The enthusiasm the board members shared has motivated the design/buildLAB forward into the next stage of the project.
From here, a program will be established for the project and the students will collaborate in pairs to form new designs that further respond to the needs of the little league and the site. A second design presentation will be held in Clifton Forge, VA on Friday, October 25!
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.
