The objective was to build a pop-up park within the Civic Center parking lot that will seat 300-500 individuals with a couple dome-like structures to build height, and interest. We truly have a super force of a team for this event. Designers such as Tara Garrigan, Phil Credi, Sean Keath, Jeromy Ross, Krystal Sokolis, and Matt Toole will be designing and constructing.
Computer rendering of layout and bench designs by industrial designer Phil Caridi. The first design was made to have bent ply and large rectangular concrete pilasters. With this design we would have had to purchase brand new materials.
By analyzing the amount of reclaimed materials we can implement into the seating Caridi redesigned the benches. With the circular bases we now have the ability to use 5 gallon plastic buckets we have collected from local restaurants for the molds and during the process of mixing concrete there will be added materials such as brick shards, glass, Styrofoam, and other fillers to create a lighter form and lessen the material cost.
Thanks to Oatland Island Wildlife located in Savannah, GA we have a facility to build at. Since this is a job that requires man power we are welcoming volunteers to join the team in bettering our local community and being apart of an ecological movement. No experience necessary, we are happy to guide you through each process. Click below for the sign up sheet.
