Florida A&M University’s School of Architecture (SOA) hosted a five-day design charrette focusing on Tallahassee’s Midtown district. The charrette was coordinated by Design Workshop, a landscape architecture, planning and urban design firm.
“One of the most important aspects of this school and this charrette, is that we do not focus on hypothetical situations,” said Rodner B. Wright, dean of the SOA.
Students from the SOA worked with the guest and faculty to address the design issues, challenges and opportunities in the Midtown district and presented a final exhibition of their work to demonstrate the contribution of a design program to stakeholders.
“I’ve never been a part of something like this,” said Delesia Hill a 23-year-old landscape architecture student. “Working with other people, learning to cooperate and getting to know other people that are passionate about the same interest was the best part.”
