Integrative Design Lab Presentations to One Valley, Inc.
On Monday afternoon, members of the 4th-year Integrative Design Lab made their final presentations to community members from One Valley, Inc.. The students have spent the semester developing schematic designs for a new environmental education and community outreach center in the traditionally underserved Loudon/Gilmer neighborhood in NW Roanoke. Since August, our community partners have shared their vision for the neighborhood with the team – hosting several site visits and visiting campus for multiple design reviews. Their feedback proved instrumental in the development of the projects. The students’ work will be compiled into a visioning document that One Valley, Inc. will use for continued stakeholder engagement, fundraising, and conversations with the City.
