Murray Innovation Center

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?
Me: 😉

STEP 3 – SKETCH

Download the Concept Design. As you read through the PDF, answer these questions:

Site Planning
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?

Building Flow
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

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 danish@kurani.us

4) Voila! You’re done. Great job
