Architecture By Children 2010
THE DESIGN PROBLEM
Thousands of buildings in our region and throughout the country stand empty. The name of the game is Adaptive Reuse. Students will select an existing building type and re-design it for a new use, look and identity of their choosing. They may select from one of two building types provided or elect to re-design an actual vacant building in their communities. The students’ task is to give new life to their chosen building by imagining a new use for it then modifying the building for the new use. Proposed uses can be fanciful or reflect a real life community opportunity or need. Sustainable [Green] Design will again be an integral component of the design problem and competition prerequisites.
Revision design problem materials and classroom resources may be ordered upon request. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and availability.
