Charrette: Generating a Design Solution

Charrette is a method of organizing thoughts and refers to any collaborative session in which a group of designers draft a solution to a design problem. While the structure of a charrette varies, they often take place in multiple sessions in which the group divides into sub-groups. Each sub-group then presents its work to the full group as material for future discussion. Such charrettes serve as a way of quickly generating a design solution while integrating the aptitudes and interests of a diverse group of people.

Please plan to attend the School Board’s “Planning Charrette” on Wednesday June 6 and Thursday June 7 from 5:30 – 8:30pm. These public meetings will decide the fate of the Sarasota High School renovations. Your support is critical to the process of choosing to preserve or destroy another Paul Rudolph school.

Alert everyone you know – a large, informed community turnout is very important. Contact us if you have questions. Thanks for being such great supporters of SHS, SAF and Paul Rudolph! Hope to see you there.
