Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of a year-long partnership between the City of Ramsey and the University of Minnesota's Resilient communities project (rcp.umn.edu). The goal of this project was to design a community center for the City of Ramsey that encourages a healthy lifestyle and is integrated into the natural landscape of the community, as well as the city's existing greenway trail system and transit-oriented downtown. Ramsey project lead Mark Riverblood collaborated with a team of students enrolled in James Wheeler's ARCH 3250 course, and Jessica Rossi-Mastracci and Joe Favour's LA 3002 course, to create a conceptual design for the site and building. A final student report and poster from the project are available.
Report and poster completed by students enrolled in ARCH 3250: Community Design and Public Interest Architecture taught by James Wheeler and LA 3002: Informants of Creating Landscape Space taught by Jessica Rossi-Mastracci and Joe Favour in spring 2018.
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 community resilience through collaborative, course-based projects.
