A group of students from the OU Gibbs College of Architecture recently participated in a design charrette during the statewide Oklahoma Brownfields Conference.

Coordinated by the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, this charrette was led by Jim Rojas of Los Angeles, California, as well as area professionals. Students worked with Rojas and others to propose designs for three sites selected by the Sapulpa Main Street Program in Sapulpa, Oklahoma.

Special thanks to faculty Tom Woodfin (landscape architecture) and Ron Frantz (architecture and environmental design) who encouraged their students to participate in this engaging activity.
