Design Workshop was pleased to conduct their eleventh design week with Clemson University. At Clemson, each team was asked to assess the four Legacy elements for the project area, address them individually and synthesize them into a solution, using a dilemma/thesis approach. With the integration of multiple disciplines and departments, the student work provided comprehensive solutions for the affected area in hopes of supporting and sustaining its unique culture and environment.

Design Week started as a week-long charrette and academic experience involving staff from Design Workshop, students from an accredited Landscape Architectural program and a private client. Developed by Kurt Culbertson, the on-campus experience was first conducted in 2003 at Kurt's alma mater, Louisiana State University. Through his relationship with the school and subsequently with many other schools, Kurt developed the event to serve multiple purposes. The primary objectives of Design Week are to contribute to the academic experience of future professionals, to develop long-term relationships with academia that may lead to research relationships, project referrals and future hires and to enrich the professional development of participating staff.
