The SUNY Broome campus is invited to a participatory workshop to help provide ideas for the development of the updated Facilities Master Plan. Subject areas that require your input include: academic facilities, social and activity spaces, athletics and recreation, open space and circulation, sustainability and more.
The event will run from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 29, in the Student Center lobby. Stay two minutes or stay an hour! We look forward to filling the charrette cart with your ideas.
Passero Associates, in association with Saratoga Associates and Scott Blackwell Page Architects, will seek input from the campus community as they work in a charrette* environment, listening to your ideas while developing concepts for the Facilities Master Plan. Come help the planning team learn about your history and culture, which will shape the future needs of the campus.
*What is a charrette? Charrette (n.): a French word for “cart or wagon” used to collect students’ drawings at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris during the 19th Century. History states that students would leap onto the cart in an attempt to complete their projects. The term “charrette” has become a universal term used by architects and designers to describe an intensive effort to develop design ideas.
