VLK Architects recently held a student design charrette at Dunbar High School to seek student input and ideas for the school’s proposed campus renovations.
VLK displayed various thought starter image boards featuring exterior building images, instructional vs collaboration spaces, and discovery zones and asked students to tag what images they liked and to post notes on why they were drawn to these images.
Afterwards, students were separated into groups and asked to participate in a gaming activity where each group got to design their version of a new library space using cutouts of various activity zones, furniture, and architectural features. Each group then presented their ideas to the group which prompted a very collaborative discussion between all the students of what they hope their remodeled library space might look like.
Students were also asked to define their school culture, what they take pride in, and what they might change if they could.
The architects will utilize the students’ notes and designs as references and inspiration during their own design process.
Students expressed their enjoyment in participating in the design charrette and are looking forward to how Dunbar High School will be transformed.
