BUILD SOME SHADE AND A STAGE!
Durham Central Park is so lucky to get the attention of this year’s summer design/build studio from NCSU architecture department. This year’s project will focus on installing a shade structure on the park’s great lawn that can also serve as a fantastic stage! We envision this structure as a venue for musical performances, puppet shows, movies, improv, you name it. And in non-performance times the structure will provide a shady seating area for just relaxing in the park.
Local architect, Ellen Cassilly of Ellen Cassilly Architects together with Randall Lanou, owner of BuildSense Design/Build Studio, are leading this project and will ensure an exceptional degree of quality and functionality. This project provides the students essential real world experience and the satisfaction of contributing a great functional structure to the community.
Starting on May 23rd the project will finish in 11 weeks. We already have $17,000 donated to start the project and we need another $13,000 to fully fund this endeavor. Please consider being a backer! Your help, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated!!
