First ideas presentation in Corning

The Bridge Studio is off to Corning tomorrow, Feb. 27, to present a range of design and building systems ideas to the people of Corning! The class has been working in two groups, one focused on design ideas and one researching building systems. For the meeting tomorrow, we will have 3 different design schemes (each with several options) plus technical proposals for building envelope and ventilation/environmental systems. We are looking forward to an exciting visit and will have the graphics from the presentation posted here shortly!

Bridge Studio Blog!

Hello and welcome to the Bridge Studio 2010 Blog!  Over the next several weeks you will be able to follow Iowa State University Design students as they work collaboratively with the City of Corning, Iowa to develop a design for an affordable and sustainable single family home.  Though the studio is only designing one home for one site, the hope is to create a model home that can then be applied to multiple sites within the community of Corning, and possibly throughout the state.

Feel free to leave comments on the work in the links below each post, as we hope the blog will generate democratic, cooperative, and interdisciplinary discussion.

Can't wait to hear what you say!
