[Chatham County City Hall] project introduction & site visit

This week we stated our first project for senior thats scary. The project is to redesign the Chatham County City Hall in Pittsboro, North Carolina. The building recently burnt down in a fire and suffered extensive damage. We are to turn it into a thriving central location of the city that brings together the residents of Pittsboro, and gives them a place to come together. Inside we are to include: a gallery/town performance area, offices, town meeting room, small meeting rooms, a lounge, reception area, restrooms, and maintenance rooms. The project works in a series of phases that includes: research, organization, programming, space planning, design development, and a final presentation. Below are some images of the space taken on a site visit. They are provided by the class blog.
