Past projects have included public playground structures, village green bandshells, park pavilions, compost privies, foot bridges, trail shelters, writers' retreats, and bus stops. In this process-driven studio experience, students will meet with the client, establish the program, work within a budget, propose and develop the design, schedule the work, and construct the project. Each phase is explored as a means of making the architecture more expressive, and sustainable building practices are emphasized throughout the process. Students will utilize a c...</p> UIC SoA Lecture 4.8: David Carson, David Carson Design JM12 2014-04-07T15:32:22-04:00 >2014-04-07T15:32:34-04:00 <img src="" width="514" height="685" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><strong>Lectu</strong><strong>re</strong></p><p>Tuesday, April 8<br>5:30pm &bull; 1100 A+D Studios<br>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>David Carson</strong><br>Owner, David Carson Design</p> BRUCE DANZIGER_ARUP Ed Akins 2014-04-07T11:00:04-04:00 >2014-04-07T11:00:04-04:00 <p><strong>ATLANTA...
