Abstract

Abstract

This paper described a community project for the design of a first draft for a mini golf course, 18 holes, with future location in a city of LA. The course was designed to be challenging, aesthetically pleasing and incorporates themes that reflect the history and culture of the city in order to promote the sightseeing and create a better area for the locals to enjoy time and have fun. The project was designed by students from Engineering Technology, ET, and Creative & Performing Arts, CPA, Departments. Students from both departments worked closely under the supervision of two faculties from the ET and the CPA to produce design proposal, along with graphic illustrations that highlight various themes related to the historical and cultural aspect of the city. The design process started with the elaboration of hand sketches that were modified to fit the course area and architectural illustrations were accomplished using AutoCAD. The theme of the mini golf course will illustrate some of the most important momentum in the civil and cultural history of the City such as No Man’s Land, Railroad, Timber Boom and Fort Polk. Students from both areas of specialization in engineering and graphic design were able to apply their knowledge by using different software to develop the project, and submit the final presentation which included both technical and emblematical illustrations.
