We wrapped up our stay in Clifton Forge this morning with a few more hours of removing unwanted concrete and vegetation. We left the site a very different place than when we arrived. As we made our exit, we immersed ourselves in the local culture one last time, visiting the famous “Jesus Rock.” This was only slightly less miraculous than our studio surviving the machinery, falling trees and nudists without any serious bodily harm. We will be back in town on Wednesday to present our project to the community.
If you look hard and squint a little, you should be able to figure out why its called the "Jesus Rock."
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.
