Today we started laying out some of the basics ideas we had after our meeting with Lyba and Roger. After presenting a very complex plan to our client we learned that the more complex the project is the more expensive it will be. So this time we are trying to stay as simple as possible and still get a wow factor out of nothing. Complexity doesn’t necessarily mean better. We’ll stay simple and it’ll be great. After having an awesome lunch listening to music from the 70’s and hanging out by the train station we came back to studio (except Jeremy who’s going to a wedding) and worked on the site plan. The next step will be to make a better study of our floor plans and see how these will influence the appearance of the façade.
WELCOME to the LSU Minden Main Street Workshop. Students and faculty from the LSU School of Architecture will be working and living in Minden for two weeks to provide assistance to Minden Louisiana Main Street in their efforts to cultivate a resilient community. This program is funded in part through a grant awarded to the LSU Office of Community Design and Development from the National Endowment for the Arts. The Minden Main Street Workshop is the first in a series of workshops to connect environmentally responsible design practices with historic preservation strategies to accelerate sustainable development in Louisiana's small towns and cities. For more information, please contact the Office of Community Design and Development.

Our last day of work has been extremely productive. We are finalizing our work and formatting it to meet our presentation requirements. As of now we have compiled nearly 4 of our 11x 17 presentation boards. These completed boards include a site introduction, existing conditions, and our proposed front elevation. In addition to these boards, we are adding several more which include a rendered section, site plans, floor plans, and exterior renderings. We have a lot of this work completed but we need to place it in presentation format. It’s going to be a long night, but hopefully we can come together and get all of our work done in time.
