From Build to Book

There have been a lot of changes since we all left for spring break a few weeks ago. Due to COVID-19 and safety concerns within our community, our project has been put on hold for a future student team to carry forward our research. Since we are no longer able to build Hale County Hospital a courtyard, we made the decision to document our research and design process through creating a book. The intent for the book is to serve as a resource for the next student team that will pick up the project as well as a case study example of how design can enhance rural hospitals in the United States.

Since Auburn University made the transition to remote learning after Spring Break, we have all been working from our homes in Greensboro. We have set up our home studios and are settling into our new stay at home routines.

To stay on top of our work, we’ve been doing daily team Zoom calls. We really enjoy the virtual background feature, although some of us are not tech-savvy enough to figure it out.

Stay tuned as we continue to share updates and progress on our project book!
