Pisces, from Greek mythology, takes the form of two fish connected by a cord that allows them to help others and ensures that they don’t lose one another. Pisces and its myths became the framework for the Louisiana Tech School of Design’s 2017 design/build project, A bridge that provides a much needed connection between the two sides of a summer camp for children with special needs and creates a variety of opportunities for one of their favorite camp activities, fishing.
Like Pisces’ chord, the project forever links the student designers to the campers they served through their first built work. This short film by Brad Deal, architect and director of the ARCH 335 design/build studio at Louisiana Tech, provides a glimpse of the connections formed between three students and three camper’s families over the course of the project and is framed by the blossoming efforts in design education to connect students to their communities and discover the power of design to bring about positive change.
