ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN COLLABORATION USF Architecture Department / Design Build Program, Halflants + Pichette and Art Center Sarasota Fayanne Hayes, Project Coordinator Hayes, Halflants, Weston and Guisti, led a series of community forums. Community members, board of directors and staff members participated in a series of presentations and open discussions which influenced the design process. Halflants and partners led teams of highly skilled professionals and guided graduate architecture students through a challenging design and fabrication process utilizing new technologies. The Center remained open to the public during construction and students and craftspeople engaged visitors in conversation about the process. Didactic panels were displayed and a video showing CNC fabrication taking place offsite and on the USF campus ran continuously in the gallery. This project was made possible by generous funding from the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation.
