THE BEST FIELD TRIP EVER, Pittsburgh, PA’s Homewood Neighborhood
Merit Award: General Design | Elaine Kramer, Chatham University Advisor: Jim Feath
The Homewood Renaissance Association sought designs for an outdoor recreation and learning area. The space will accommodate after-school and summer programs for children, 10-14. The association asked for programming based on urban agriculture activities that would support science, engineering, technology and math learning. They selected this design as the one it would seek to construct because the design anticipated needs, provided flexible spaces and respected community values.The jury thought this was a great model of site planning and appreciated seeing freehand sketches from conceptual design to simple renderings that affectively conveyed the details of the park.
