Faculty consider $1 million
options for 16-acre 'ranch'

Daylong design charrette held to develop
ideas using A&M Riverside Campus parcel


The College of Architecture has set aside $1 million to develop a 16-acre parcel of land that has been offered to the college by Texas A&M University. Tentatively dubbed the "Architecture Ranch," the land is located in the middle of A&M's Riverside Campus (west of Highway 47, just south of the junction with Highway 21.)

The college plans to use the site as a testing ground for college research initiatives and student projects in construction, design, planning, landscape architecture and art.

On Nov. 8, 2003, several faculty members gathered at the site, and later at the Langford Architecture Center, for a daylong charrette aimed at designing facilities and strategies for utilizing the new area.

Below, in PDF format, are notes and PowerPoint presentations developed by the three charrette teams.
