North and Central America->U.S. Virgin Islands->Saint Croix
This student project by Joe Brookover and Tim Beverage was produced Winter 2012 in Kay Bea Jones' ARCH 442 class.
"Our project creates a new typology of research lab, one that changes the lab from and institution of private research to a place of public discovery. We accomplish this by turning program that is typically private in a research lab into a new public exhibit. Analysis of program led to ways to combine redundant space, allow for the building to be open to the tropic environment of St. Croix, and allow the shuffling of private and public programs to create new experiences between groups." -- Joe Brookover and Tim Beverage
