2012 Student Project Pipeline| One-Day Design Charrette | Students working with Architects

In preparation for the NOMA 2012 Conference in October, we are organizing a design charrette to be held on Saturday, July 14 (NOMA-Detroit's first Student Pipeline Project event). The goal is to redesign WARM Training's Energy Demonstration Center. The winning design will be fabricated and built the week of the Conference by NONA volunteers in October. Please refer to the brochure below for more information. All are welcome to attend!

Definition of "Charrette":
The word charrette may refer to any collaborative session in which a group of designers drafts a solution to a design problem. Charrettes serve as a way of quickly generating a design solution while integrating the aptitudes and interests of a diverse group of people. Compare this term with workshop.

Thought to originate from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris in the 19th century, the word charrette is from the French for cart or chariot.

Sponsorships are still available - contact Rob Saxon, AIA, LEED AP, NOMA -
