Antioch College Charrette wraps up tonight
- Published: March 5, 2015
Tonight, March 5, from 6 to 9 p.m., the designers involved in the Antioch College Village Charrette will present their work so far at a public event in the South Gym. Everyone is invited.
In its fifth and last day, the charrette is a public designing event that began Sunday evening, when 200 villagers and members of the college community gathered to brainstorm ideas and priorities for the Village, which is a 160-unit housing project that college leaders hope to locate on campus. The project would likely include a diversity of housing models, including cottages, townhouses and co-housing, and would be open to all interested persons.
The turnout at this week’s event has been robust, according to consultant Sandy Wiggins of the firm Consilience, who said, “Participation has been outstanding.”
Following this week’s event, the designers will further refine their plans, do a financial analysis, then present the materials this spring or early summer to the Antioch College Board of Trustees, who must approve them before moving ahead with the project.
