RW News: FAMU’s School of Architecture Participated in a Design Charrette

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.”

Welcome to the blogsphere. Just a quick word of advice, colored letters on a black background are terribly hard to read.

Especially for us "old school" Rattlers. The blog is great, though. Thanks FAMU Office of Public Affairs!
