3RD YEAR STARTING THEIR MOBILE ENVIRONMENT PROJECT
3rd year students begin their 'near environment'/ mobile environment project this week to transform an El Dorado National executive coach into a mobile work and relaxation center.  4 groups will create individual and group work relaxation zones within the interior for the next 5 weeks. Expectations and energy levels are high! Watch our progress in the east lot at APD West or follow our blog on the IAPD website.
  
2ND YEAR CONTINUES TO WORK ON TINY HOUSE PROJECT
The 2nd year studios have finished week 4 of their 6 week tiny home on wheels project.  They drew full scale floor plans in chalk outside at APD West so the students could visualize the actual space. It allowed them to see if they were being realistic about how much space they were dedicating to certain zones of the home. This is a very exciting time because they are finally starting to see their final concepts come through.
