Tasks competeted: Project development


Hours worked: 6 hours

tasks completed: Presented work for the final time to the AIA community. Received excellent feedback on how the boards might look to better portray our vision of West Ashley.

Weekly writeup: This week was an excellent learning lesson within the politics of architecture and how to take a project that can change the fabric of the city and make it a contribution to the city. The office was full of people most of the week for the 3×3 design charrette and they offered a large amount of data and ideas. The multi disciplinary drive to complete and present a proper design for Charleston was truly inspiring.
