Here is a follow-up on our presentation from February, 2016 by visiting Danish Architecture students and professors. Their fieldwork in Christiansted last winter and spring was the subject of our February lecture presentation, and now it is time to see some concepts they have explored as a result.
The St. Croix community is invited to an architecture exhibit of student works executed by the Aarhus School of Architecture, Aarhus, Denmark.
The projects address the revitalization of the Old Barracks Complex located on Hospital Street in the historic town of Christiansted. Working towards the realization of the winning 2013 Christiansted Town Plan, this exhibit is the First Phase of the project which requests community engagement to provide input on the designs to revitalize a portion of Hospital Street to become the UVI School of Architecture and Building Crafts.
The plan envisions a College Town placed within the historic district that would be a catalyst to increase the number of residents in the town and encourage the establishment of related businesses needed to support the new school.
Come out and be part of positive change in making our rich, historic, and cultural town continue to grow and be an economic and educational asset to St. Croix and the entire Virgin Islands community and meet the Danish Delegation—
