Please join us for our public presentation for the Plaza Design Competition at the Weisman Art Mueseum. A reception prior to the event will be held at the Weisman at 6pm with presentations to follow across the plaza from the museum in room 230 of the STSS building. See you then!
This weekend was the Weisman Art Museum Grand Reopening Gala (Saturday, Oct. 1) and WAMdemonium (Sunday, Oct. 2nd). The new expansion featured our team’s design competition materials for a new public plaza at the east end of the Washington Avenue Pedestrian and Bike bridge. Kick off festivities started Saturday night. Bob Kost, Director of Planning & Urban Design at SEH, was invited to attend the reopening gala with hundred of arts patrons including the wold renown architect, Frank Gehry. It was an exciting weekend. We look forward to presenting to the professional jury and the public on October 26th.
