CMA Hosted Event With University of Florida DCP

CMA, along with University of Florida’s College of Design, Construction and Planning (DCP), hosted a design charette to the Landscape Architecture students. CMA staff Tanya McCormick, PLA, AICP, Eric Harrison, PLA and John Gorham, PLA kicked off the charette on January 13th and concluded the charette on January 20th. The subject site used for the charette was Currie Park in West Palm Beach. The students were given certain parameters and site information and were asked to prepare site designs to present to CMA for a scholarship of $1,800. The students presented their designs to Tanya, Eric and Dan Manley of UF DCP. The designs were scored based on the inclusion of the provided program elements, observation of site constraints and the deliverables. CMA heavily weighed the creativity and quality of the presentations, and ultimately presented the scholarship to four deserving students. CMA is grateful to have been given this opportunity to begin building relationships with these amazing students and we look forward to seeing them again at the DCP career fair next month!
