Last month (and I'm just now getting around to it...) I worked on a project here at the CUDC where we transformed a vacant house into the "Urban Bean Coffee House." The house would also include some classrooms and a small library/conference room to help educate locals about basic home repair and sustainable initiatives. It was also a way for me to exercise my sketching skills. The short project also included a tire recycling facility which would be located in a site to be determined. This project helped me get involved in the client/designer relationship and it was cool seeing how an urban design project plays out from beginning to end!
