Hello Supporters and Friends!
At long last, the Opening of Curtain will be this Saturday, July 14th! The last month and a half of construction has been a memorable and oftentimes exhausting, intense, entertaining, and rewarding experience. The built product has turned out remarkably; surpassing even our optimistic hopes. It is thrilling to experience in real space.
All are encouraged to join us tomorrow for an Opening Picnic at Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens from 2-6pm. Food and Refreshments provided, bring anything you wish. Afterparty to follow at Anabelle Basin on the water nearby!
See you there! This promises to be an unconventional, enjoyable day for architects and non-architects alike.
The project has also received some exciting press, including an interview we conducted with Greg Wessner of The Architectural League of New York on June 20th. Check it out:
Thank you everyone for supporting us! We could not of completed this project without you!
