The architects, Parkhill Smith & Cooper, held a student design charrette at Southwest High School. Thought-starter images and image boards featuring exterior building images, instructional vs collaboration spaces, and discovery zones were displayed, and students placed sticky notes with comments on the different images.
Students were separated into groups and designed their idea of new spaces throughout the school. They presented their ideas to each other using a combination of drawings and images they liked the best. It prompted a collaborative discussion between all the students as an exchange of ideas and common themes surfaced related to the overall renovation.
The architects will utilize the students’ valuable input as reference and inspiration during their design process.
