In 1999, the Forest Service held a series of design

charettes (workshops) across the Nation.

These discussions and drawing sessions included

the participation of members of the Forest Service,

other Federal agencies, academics, and a team

of consultants. By profession, participants

included architects, engineers, landscape architects,

historians, writers, archeologists, recreation

and facility managers, field technicians, and

line officers.


The charettes identified the following influences and

responses for each province:

• Ecological influences.

• Cultural influences.

• Economic influences.

• Architectural response to the influences of

ecology, culture, and economics.

• Suitable architectural character types for the province.


These influences and detailed recommendations for architectural responses are discussed in part 2.
