AIA Dallas 2021 Emerging Leaders Program: Camp Summit – Schematic Planning & Design
Following the first site visit to Camp Summit, a summer camp for those with disabilities, the team prepared a follow-up visit with design documents geared toward initial concepts prepared by four separate teams – Camper Cabins, Welcome Center, Landscaped Path, and Site & Wayfinding.
Working through MIRO for collaboration the entire ELP program was able to operate simultaneously in one web-based platform. Each team prepared a 5-10 page presentation outlining inspiration, concepts, and gathered information. Thanks to those who visited the site, we have drone footage and field notes of the existing camp as well as areas outlined for our additional program. Site vehicular circulation, pedestrian paths, and existing topography have been taken into consideration. The four presentations were prepared and presented to the Camp Summit staff on May 15th, 2021. The content and design direction were well received by the staff and important feedback was obtained and communicated to all team members. Moving forward, class leaders have prepared and outlined a schedule of deliverables for the rest of the year. The ultimate deliverable is a Final Camp Summit Presentation on October 23rd, 2021 with the next target being an Internal Design Review on July 6th, 2021.
