Virtual Design Charrette

The Project

Trò chơi rất caoThe site currently has ±4,700 square feet of turf area; a large, nonfunctional fountain; and a number of raised planters and ground level landscape areas. The City proposes to remove ±3,000 square feet of turf and the nonfunctional fountain to install landscaping that demonstrates Water-Wise, Fire-Safe, and Urban Tree Canopy concepts. The site has predominately spray irrigation that needs to be upgraded to introduce current water-efficient technology.

This project addresses Sustainability Plan Priority 1.1: Reduce energy and water use in city facilities 20% by 2025 from the 2014 baseline.

The Program

Following the site visit opportunity, we ask that participants log into the virtual design charrette venue
Trò chơi rất cao by 10:00 a.m. The program will begin with introductions and brief presentations regarding the historic nature of the original landscape and building, Water Wise and Fire Safe landscaping, and Urban Tree Canopy concepts. 

Following the presentations the participants will be separated into smaller working groups to develop design concepts which embrace the three design practices while preserving some historic aspects of the original landscape intent. After the breakout session, groups will reconvene to present their team’s design ideas.

The day will end with a final discussion of the results. Sketches, sections, design concepts, notes and other drawings will be collected and used to develop a final design and construction drawing for the construction of the landscape retrofit by fall 2020.
