[4th] year update: VANCE CHAVIS

January 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

Welcome back! We start this semester by looking back at a collaborative studio project completed and presented at the end of the fall ’10 semester.  Travis Hicks‘ fourth year studio worked collectively as a group as well as with several community partners to complete this incredible design project.  We look forward to showcasing more wonderful work and community collaboration this semester, so stay tuned!
Several students and faculty attended Travis Hicks‘ fourth year studio’s review for their design of the Vance Chavis library.  In addition, we had several guests for the review: Thomas Forget, Assistant Professor of Architecture at UNC-Charlotte; Chris Garris, Lead Design Architect with The Freelon Group of RTP; Jennifer Sheppard, Interior Designer with O’Brien/Atkins of RTP, Sandy Neerman, Director of Greensboro Public Library; Brigitte Blanton, Assistant Director of Greensboro Public Library; Wanda Phifer, Manager of Chavis and Glenwood Libraries; and Willie Taylor, Greensboro Public Library Board of Trustees.
Students presented the studio’s group project, the re-design of the Vance Chavis Lifelong Learning Branch Library, for which they collectively designed a new site and building.  This formal presentation of the group work was followed by a gallery-style review of students’ individual designs of interior detail elements.
