Communicorps: Keene State Students Design for the Community
KEENE, N.H., 5/03/10 - For 18 years, students from Keene State College's Communicorps class have solved design problems for community organizations in the Monadnock region. This required course in the architecture program emphasizes a team approach to solving complex architectural problems, giving sophomore and junior students valuable experience with real-life architectural challenges. On April 28, community members were invited to see the designs at a luncheon in the Mountain View Room. Twelve student teams (42 students) created designs for six major projects.
This year's projects included:
• Master plan for the re-use of the current Keene Middle School building
Keene State offers the only four-year B.S. Architecture degree at a public liberal arts college in New England. Designed to give students a solid foundation in the artistic, scientific, and technical aspects of architecture, the curriculum offers a range of courses in studio design, building science, sustainable design, history/theory, digital technology, and practice.
