This project was completed as part of the 2015-2016 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with Carver County. The Andrew Peterson Farmstead, located near the city of Waconia, is a site with great historic significance. The Carver County Historical Society was interested in creative strategies to increase tourism to the farm and to provide a better experience for visitors. The goal of this project was to design interpretive signage to enhance the experience of visitors to the farmstead. CCHS project lead Wendy Petersen-Biorn collaborated with two teams of students in ARCH 3250: Community Design Practice Workshop; the first team developed a set of design recommendations for interpretive signage, and the second team created a proposal for a virtual reality application that would provide an "enhanced reality" experience for visitors. The students' final reports are available.
Reports completed by students enrolled in ARCH 3250: Community Design Practice Workshop, taught by James Wheeler in spring 2016.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance local sustainability and resilience through collaborative, course-based projects.
