In what has become an annual tradition, RViers traveled to Aggieland this past month to attend the Aggie Workshop and Career Fair.  The multi-day event brings students and professionals together for a combination of networking, seminars, and design charrettes.

This year’s team included Lisa Horne, Megan French, and Austin Hicks, who selected RVi’s recent Tarleton State University Pedestrian Mall project as the subject for the workshop.  Students enjoyed digging in to the challenges of designing this 2.5 acre space, and after a timed charrette, they produced a site analysis, spatial programming, site plan, two perspective sketches, and two sections for the project.  Once the students finished their designs, the RVi team revealed our firm’s actual design for the project, including a 3D fly-though created using Lumion software.

Apart from the Workshop, RViers also participated in interviews during the Career Fair portion of the event and enjoyed a keynote address from Andrea Cochran of the award-winning Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture in San Francisco.
