Thirteen students from the School of Architecture, led by Professor Carl Safe (right), recently broke ground for a new garden pavilion for the main courtyard of Crown Center, a retirement community located at 8350 Delcrest Drive in University City. Safe and the students are now building the 22-foot-wide by 9-foot-tall pavilion, which is scheduled for completion in early May. The project will provide residents with a shaded, relaxing setting while also giving young architects hands-on experience in all aspects of the construction process, from meetings with clients and designing proposals to fabricating metal joints and assembling beams.
