Our Reservoir Sketchup!
The Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance is working with an architectual firm to develop plans for the future usage of the site. The rendering to the left is the official working "map" used by the Alliance. Key Design Principles of the new Reservoir site include:
Project Reservoir students researched the Reservoir Alliance's proposed plan for the future design of the reservoir site and expressed interest in wanting to contribute to the design. After a few internet searches they discovered a program called Google SketchUp that allowed them to create a three dimensional architectural model of their "ideal" reservoir. They immediately self-educated themselves through online tutorials and learned principles of architecture and engineering to help achieve their objective of providing the community with a 3D view of the proposed usage of the reservoir property while incorporating new features created by the Project Reservoir team.
