a place to share ideas
Lake Flatonians Ashley Heeren, Jamie Sartory, Grace Bowdewyns, and Kristin Walsh recently volunteered their skills to the Lighter! Quicker! Cheaper! community charrette joining teams to design small scale place-making interventions at a number of public sites throughout San Antonio. One of the proposals will be selected for further development and implementation by the city. You can catch a glimpse of the proposals and vote here for your favorite, as well as listen to inteviews with Ashley and Jamie expounding upon their proposals. Projects include a street closure between two parks, a bat roost,a fleet of tiny libraries deployed throughout the city, a community garden, and a dog park. The work will be on display at an open house Thursday, July 26, 6:30pm-8pm at the Center for Architecture at the Pearl Brewery.
