Final Countdown

What a week! This past Friday we had the opportunity to present to the Parks Conservancy, Green Heart, Meeting Street Academy (MSA), and the City our small group designs.

Week Ahead

Not too much has been going on since our last post. To recap, the studio is broken up into 3 teams for the site location/structure. Team one (T1) and team two (T2) are working on a single structure with T1 being in the center and T2 being adjacent to garden bed locations. Team Three is [...]
