Designing the Future
November 13, 2018
A student design charrette was recently held at Amon Carter-Riverside HS to engage students in the design visioning process for the campus’s future building addition and renovation project. Architects, Glenn Partners, conducted four student based activities:
- A Word Association Activity to help establish a vision for what students would like to see incorporated. Words such as collaborative, energetic, timeless, open and vibrant rose to the top.
- A Visual Listening Activity where students used colored dots to place on image boards denoting images that had meaning to them. This activity will give Glenn Partners the idea of the architectural planning and types of space students would like to see incorporated into the project.
- A Student Mapping Activity where students designated where the heart of the campus is and/or should be, where they gather, arrival and exiting points, and their daily travel paths.
- A Building Block Activity where students got to create a master plan for their campus.
The architects will utilize the students’ valuable input as reference and inspiration during their design process.
