Transcript Design/Build Studio Story by Jessica Robertson An architecture course gave UH students the opportunity to construct an outdoor stage for music and dance at an elementary school. raduate students in UH's Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture spent the summer of 2004 making the dreams of performing arts students at Oran M. Roberts Elementary School a reality. A team of 18 students in the Design/Build Studio graduate architecture course built an outdoor stage for drama, music, dance and gymnastics performances at the school, located on Greenbriar Drive near Rice University. Under the supervision of architecture professor Patrick Peters, the Design/ Build Studio gives students the opportunity to put real-life skills into practice. The team spent the summer semester working intensively on fabrication drawings, steel fabrication, concrete construction and stage erection. "The overall process was very similar to a real architectural firm" graduate architecture student Robert Tai said. "Each member of the workshop had an integral role during the whole process. The program taught me more about architecture ... than any other experience!' The $36,000 project was initiated and funded by the Roberts Parent-Teacher Organization. Because the goal of the workshop every year is to construct site- specific solutions for Houston non-profit organizations, Peters said the stage was the perfect project for his students. "Music and dance performances are a big part of the life of the school" Peters said. "The only available permanent performance stage that existed previously was in the cafeteria, and it was quite small!' The team labored for months on the structure, which consisted of a galvanized steel frame and a raised concrete floor surrounded by sod-covered terraces. Art tiles on the concrete were hand-painted by students at Roberts and installed by local artist Fletcher Mackey. "The stage has been used formally for events and casual gatherings since its construction" Peters said. "It is also a major venue for performances and activities during the school's international festival and spring carnival. We view (the project) as a great success!' 200
