Student Project Presentations
Friday, November 18 and Saturday, November 19 via ZOOM
Registration Required (see below)
This fall term, Conway’s Class of 2023 is working on individual ecological design projects in nearby cities, towns, and countrysides. They will present conceptual designs and recommendations grounded in the process of site analysis. The design solutions strive to fit the needs of the clients to the specific ecology of the site while upholding the school’s mission. We invite a panel of outside critics, and their comments will help guide revisions the students will make over the final weeks of the term.
Residential projects are located in Northampton, Easthampton, Holyoke, South Hadley, Amherst, Sunderland, Conway, Greenfield, and Bernardston. Properties range in size from small urban and suburban lots to multiple acre rural sites. From drainage issues to structure siting, access issues to concerns about aging in place, projects present the class with a diversity of site conditions and design challenges. Non-residential projects this term include designs for All Souls Church in Brattleboro, VT, Griswold Memorial Library in Colrain, Lander Grinspoon Academy in Northampton, Easthampton Community Garden and Echodale Orchard, Dwight St. Community Garden in Holyoke, and The Florence Civic Center and Lilly Library in Florence.
We welcome prospective students, prospective clients, alums, and anyone else interested in learning about the Conway School to attend remotely via Zoom.
Join us for all or part of the day on Friday, November 18 and/or Saturday, November 19.
