    About

    These planter barricades are movable, modular, and allow for different materials to be used in construction. The planters on top of the barriers are for beautification but can also be used as detachable trash bins. The frame can be covered using polycarbonate, extrude metal, and wrapped fabric. A modular lighting strip can also be included for nighttime dining.

  3. Artwork Display System

    Comments Off on Artwork Display System

    About

    This community building project is a temporary modular structure to showcase artwork by local artists, educational institutions, and other community members. This working group proposed that artworks could be themed to reflect the artist’s experience during COVID-19, how they coped with quarantine, and what message can they share from that experience.

    Each piece is inserted into a picture frame that rotates around a rod or a dowel. The artwork can be placed on one side with its description on the other side. The frames collectively create a mosaic wall rotating to create a dynamic rhythm. The materials required for the project are low-cost and easily acquired.

It’s no coincidence that, while these values and principles acknowledge the central importance of solid yet innovative engineering, their real focus is on people—the client, the engineer, the community—and it’s our unwavering commitment not only to these ideals but to the human relationships implied by them that has been the true key to our success.
