Students to participate in design charrette for wounded warriors’ rehabilitation
Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning & Design students in architecture, interior architecture & product design, and landscape architecture, were invited to participate in a design charrette to develop a master plan for a new farm-training and healing center to serve wounded soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
The charrette will be at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 21 at APD West, the college's temporary facility by the Manhattan airport. Students will work collaboratively in teams and present their conceptual designs to the client at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 22.
Soldier Agricultural Vocational Education, or SAVE, is committed to empowering and supporting wounded soldiers. Their vision is to provide a farm-based vocational training and healing center. The organization has identified an 80-acre farm in Keats, six miles outside of Manhattan. The farm-training and healing center will serve individuals with traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder as well as severely injured amputees.
