The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture will host a public exhibition of student’s work from this last semester (fall of 2016) on January 21st from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts.
As part of the ongoing Globe-Miami Studio project being conducted by the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture over the next 3 years, the latest crop of Master’s students will present the designs they worked on last fall at a public exhibit to be held at the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts on January 21, from 6:30 pm to 8:30pm.
Students and faculty will be on hand to talk to community members about their designs and answer questions.
According to the school, they “evaluate success by measuring what was created, the impact on the local economy and ecology, and by looking at specific benchmarks set with community partners. ”
For each project, the school then measures two aspects: internal effectiveness and the economic and social impact and says projects must meet certain criteria. According to Taliesin:
Internal Effectiveness is measured by evaluating the following factors:
**Degree to which sustainability is integrated throughout the entire project **Efficiency of site design **Efficiency of structural systems **Design and structure functionality **Efficiency of building materials and assemblies **Cost & project time in both projection and reality **Openness and social fluidity **Beauty
Economic and Social Impact is measured by evaluating the following factors:
In addition “for impact beyond its immediate application” Taliesin projects must meet the following criteria.
- *Design can be studied and replicated
- *Finished product improves sustainability and reduces the human-made impact to the environment in both use and construction.
- *Improves aesthetic beauty using local land resources
- *Improves functionality
- *Increases efficiency in the design method.
