A grassroots future facilities charrette


char·rette [shuh-ret] noun

“a final, intensive effort to finish a project, especially an architectural design project, before a deadline.”

Unit 4 has given us lots of data to process, but still, what does it look like to put a high school near the Centennial site? What about on Olympian Drive? What about Neil and Bradley?

Come explore with us; we will have large-format GIS maps that we can mark up with pencils, pens, and lots of accessories like Monopoly® hotels, scissors, notepads, stickies, etc. The idea is to have fun brainstorming while using our hands to physically manipulate the possibilities.

1:00—4:00 pm, Sunday, April 7th
Foundation Room (Room 222) Champaign Public Library (upper level)

Two more will be planned, one later in April and one in May

UPDATE: you don’t have to stay for the entire 3 hours – come when you can, stay for as long as you want.
