The Barn Project
President Jonathan Lash has tasked the community with repurposing and moving the barn located on his property to campus. This is a learning opportunity grounded in reality. It is up to the students, staff, faculty and administration of Hampshire College to decide how it is used. One of the goals with this project is to compile a comprehensive list of current spatial needs on campus. So, even if the barn can’t meet your needs given the other proposals that are submitted, it will still be included in the final document that comes out of this process that will hopefully be revisited as resources become available in the future.
Submit a written proposal
This Fall 2011 we invite all community members to write a proposal for its use. Do you belong to a student group or office that has spatial needs? Have an innovative use for a 36’x36’ space? Rehamping encourages you to visit us during our weekly meetings (Tuesdays at 8pm in EDH 3 Studio) or to schedule a one-on-one meeting by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We are available to discuss proposal ideas, answer questions and network you with other groups who you might partner with to create a stronger proposal. Proposals should be emailed to email@example.com by December 20, 2011.
A series of open workshops during JanTerm 2012 will go through the proposals to identify a proposal—or combination of proposals—that best meets the needs of the Hampshire College community. Although our immediate task is to identify the next use of the Barn, we plan to review the proposals to develop a comprehensive documentation of space needs across campus. These will take place Saturday, January 7 & 14 at 11AM-5PM in the EDH 3 Studio. Attendees of the workshops will further develop the selection process. Notes will be posted to this blog so community members not on campus can be involved.
In Spring 2012 professor of architecture, Caryn Brause will lead a studio course that forms a design around the selected written proposal(s). The course will work in close consultation with the “client(s)” to ensure the design fulfills the needs of the program.
In Summer or Fall of 2012, depending on the physical and financial scale of the final design, students will work with specialists to deconstruct and reconstruct the barn on campus.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to discuss proposal ideas.
