We are planning a charrette next friday. What is a charrette? The definition of the word charrette highlights its usefullness. “A charrette may refer to any collaborative session in which a group of designers drafts a solution to a design problem…. Such charrettes serve as a way of quickly generating a design solution while integrating the aptitudes and interests of a diverse group of people”(Wikipedia).
The Interior Architecture program is joining with the Art department for a day long charrette that is looking to create design options for a new mural on a building wall that is on the corner of Grove St. and Glenwood Ave. in Greensboro. This is a great opportunity for interaction among all students as well as a chance to stretch everyone’s artistic and design abilities in a community minded project. The results of the day of design generation will be on display at Glenwood Coffee and Bookstore for a time where the community can express their thoughts and suggestions. The event will occur from 9-4 in Gatewood on the 3rd floor this coming Friday the 24th. We would love for any one interested to join and assist with the generation of ideas to email the department. We will also provide an update on this blog following the event. See you there!
