Magnolia Community Garden

Fall 2013

This Fall the studio is devoted to the execution of one project- researching and designing  for a community garden site in the Avondale neighborhood of West Ashley, as well as fabricating, and installing a Micro-work of architecture, a storage/shade structure for the garden.

The process included working with the Charleston Parks and Recreation department for the garden master plan and shading structure design, working with the Charleston Parks Conservancy on installation of the design, and working with local architects and engineers to create a full set of construction documents for the storage/shading structure.

Three months of work culminated into the Magnolia Park Shading structure that helped transform this space into the Magnolia Community Garden.
