UC Davis students have designs on Washington Square

18 students from UC Davis are creating design concepts for Washington Park in San Francisco to be presented to the Friends of Washington Square Park and the city’s Recreation and Park Department. The San Francisco Chronicle reported the recent site visit by the students and Marianne Bertuccelli, the department’s manager for Washington Square and 35 other sites in the city’s northeast.

The park sees a large amount of activity during the day and especially on summer weekends. The San Francisco Chronicle quoted Bertuccelli as saying

“We’re interested in seeing what the students come up with, and how that compares with our thoughts. … I’d love to form a consensus with the community about something we can implement on a phased-in basis.”

UBC students design pavilion for 2010 Olympics

Sarah Chung at the THEUBYSSEY.CA reports

The 24-hour design session, or 24-hour charette, consisted of interdisciplinary architecture student teams designing a rain-proof, bright, and lively pavilion to be erected in Downtown Vancouver for the 2010 Olympics. The event was held at the Lasserre Building and ended at 9am Monday morning.

“[The Olympics] are starting to get so close…this is a chance to have an effect and be involved in the Olympics, and the fact that [the pavilion] will actually be built, that’s really exciting,” said Jamie Johnson, a second-year Landscape Architecture student.

Winners will be announced on November 16 by a panel of multi-disciplinary judges.
