A SPACE OF REPOSE

Students enrolled in Gretchen Schneider’s Fall 2005 course, Introduction to Architecture: Site and Space, were involved with a design/build project, A Space of Repose. The students were given of a “budget” of 16 sheets of 30"x40" cardboard per project and in teams of two or three students, designed and built spaces of repose for the playgrounds at Fort Hill. These Spaces of Repose were tested in October and were displayed at the Campus Center and at the Opening Celebration of the new Fort Hill building. The children used the structures for several months and they were featured in an article in the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
