Eatonville: Sustainable Visions
Advanced landscape architecture students from North Carolina A & T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina will spend the fall semester developing frameworks for sustainable visions for the physical resources of Florida.
The students, Christian Anderson, John Dufort and Keana Graham, will work as a team to prepare a broad set of proposals tailored to authentic attributes and heritage of the town. The project will provide unique field experiences in an underserved community.
The Professor & The Community
The students and their professor, Perry Howard, FASLA, visited Eatonville early this semester for an intensive introduction and overview of the historic, cultural, and environmental background of the community. They met with residents, civic leaders, and toured the town on foot and by car.
The Student Visions
The student visions are scheduled to be presented in early December, 2013 and again in Eatonville on January 31, 2014 during the Zora Neale Hurston Festival for the Arts and the Humanities.
