6. Charrette Program
The design charrette courthouse program which will be used for the purpose of this
charrette will vary from the actual program for the new Toledo Courthouse. Participants
will receive a copy of the design charrette program two weeks prior to the charrette.
All square foot areas and number of rooms will have been deleted from this transmitted
copy to discourage pre-charrette design activity. The full program including all areas
and number of rooms will be provided to firms at the commencement of the charrette.
Although no specific budget will be provided for the charrette program, it is to be
assumed that vision schemes will be appropriate to the typical level of budget for
federal courthouse projects.
The charrette program will be the sole design criteria for the charrette problem.
7. Submission Requirements
Competitors must follow the outlined submission requirements. Because there will be no
team presentation opportunity to the jury, it is important that the "vision" and submitted
work are easily understood by a reading of the submitted boards. The presentation
should clearly show and emphasize the principal urban design, organization, and
architectural ideas, rather than attempt to address and resolve in detail all the building's
internal function and technical issues.
A. The following items are the minimum drawing requirements to be submitted:
Context plan and diagrams to convey how the design vision relates to
the surrounding city and context.
Self-explanatory plans, sections, elevations, and image drawings as
required to convey the design vision to the jury.
