Wrapping up the Semester with Architecture 1

Hello from RA Katy and Peer Mentors JP and Emmy. We hope you all had a good Thanksgiving Break. In JP’s section of the LLC the students are working towards completing their final projects. They have been given the assignment to create a design solution to fix one of the problems that Milwaukee is struggling with. The students are allowed to pick whichever issue is most important to them and then create their own solution to the problem. The final product of this project will be in the form of various diagrams, sketches as well as a written design statement. In Emmy’s section of the LLC, the students are designing a senior living community. They need to focus on site accessibility as well as the more technical aspects of grading the topography. The final product of this project will be a set of diagrams, technical drawings as well as a model of their buildings on the site.

On November 18th, the LLC students had a unique opportunity to share what they were working on with the rest of the SARUP community. Each Friday, the school hosts tea and bikkies where a specific part of the architecture community will briefly speak about what they are doing during the semester while the whole school enjoys cookies and tea. On the 18th, it was the architecture LLC’s turn to speak and four students showed off their work and explained what the LLC is all about. Overall the event was very successful.

On December 13th, the LLC will be hosting its last event of the semester. We will be holding a gingerbread architecture contest. The students will have to design an architectural piece using gram crackers, frosting and various other tasty treats. The winner of the competition will receive a fabulous prize consisting of different architectural supplies.
