Huckabee recently held a student design charrette at Western Hills High School. Thought-starter image boards featuring exterior building images, instructional vs collaboration spaces, and discovery zones were displayed, and students tagged which images they liked or disliked. The students expanded upon what they liked or disliked on sticky notes which were separated into different categories. It prompted a collaborative discussion between all the students as an exchange of ideas and common themes surfaced.
Students then created a wish list of what they would like to see in the renovation.
Huckabee took the students outside to a common area and asked for their ideas on what changes they would like to see.
Finally, students designed their vision of various new spaces within the school.
The architects will utilize the students’ valuable input as reference and inspiration during their design process.

The architects, Huckabee, were at Western Hills High School taking 360 degree photos and laser scans of rooms and hallways using a portable laser scanner. The scans will serve as a base when constructing a 3D model of the school to give them an idea of what is going on in the building.
