LSU Design Week – A tradition of the Landscape Architecture School – started today. The 2012 event marks the first venture to support an interdisciplinary experience by including students from the School of Architecture. About 150 students and 15 faculty advisors in total will spend the week working on 13 different installations to be built on the grounds of the Hilltop Arboretum in Baton Rouge.
I have the honor of developing the project scope and directing the progress over the next 5 days. Woo hoo! The week is an exciting endeavor for everyone involved. Today we met out at the Arboretum after a formal introduction on campus, and students explored and contemplated the site where their group will design and build an installation. By Friday 13 fantastic pieces of environmental art will grace Hilltop.
For those of you who have taken Remote Studio this ambitious project takes the concept of making vessels to another realm.
Stay tuned……for the ideas, the work and the ART !
