Round Two Rundown
Koch Hazard Architects and the Rural Learning Center/MCCR staff hosted two days of brainstorming, design and feedback on April 29 – 30 in Howard, SD. The workshop, called a “charrette,” included roundtable discussions and prioritization on campus elements, uses and needs, preliminary design concepts and space requirements, and public feedback. During a Town Hall meeting at Howard High School on April 29, local residents voted on over 100 different design element images, helping the architects discover local preferences and expectations.
Over 75 local people, along with project investors and stakeholders, design and construction professionals, and experts in important fields (like hotel management, hospitality, food service, sound, technology and conferencing) took part in the workshops.
Now the architect team will work to produce more detailed design concepts based on input and ideas from charrette attendees. These designs will be further refined at a final design workshop on June 30, 2008.
