Dear MP Staff,
I’m thrilled to share the initial building designs with you, and see what ideas you have for improving them.
STEP 1 – GROUNDING
Remember the planning workshops and surveys in January?
Click on the images for a refresher on what the MP community is clamoring for.
STEP 2 – WATCH
You: So how’s the design looking?
Me: Glad you asked. Watch the video below and I’ll show you
Me: If you’re pressed for time, watch Chapters 1-3 and skip 4
You: It’s blurry! Should I click on HD?
STEP 3 – SKETCH
Download the Concept Design. As you read through the PDF, answer these questions:
a) What other factors should be considered when placing the building on site?
b) Can we tweak the building’s positioning or outdoor areas to better support the trends from Step 1?
a) What else is important to consider in the floorplan?
b) What would you modify/add in the floorplan to better support the trends and spaces needed?
As you brainstorm, sketch your solutions and ideas.
STEP 4 – SHARE
It’s time to climb out of your comfy silo (or throw blanket) and meet with other humans. Here are your teams
|May 20, 10:00||May 20, 12:00||May 20, 1:30||May 21, 1:15||May 21, 2:15|
When your team meets —
1) Give each individual a chance to share his/her sketches and thoughts on the design
2) Once all ideas are heard, narrow down to a Top 5 Ideas. Each top idea needs an accompanying sketch or diagram to illustrate your point
3) Create a Google Doc. Add 5 sketches and write a few sentences describing each one. Share the doc with firstname.lastname@example.org
4) Voila! You’re done. Great job
