Update #15

Harvest Dome 2.0 wins Inaugural Dwell Vision Award

Comment

Harvest Dome 2.0 was awarded Dwell Magazine's inaugural Dwell Vision Award, at a reception held last night at Jane's Carousel in DUMBO. The Dwell Vision Award is given for a project that is "technically and artistically groundbreaking and that shows a new method, material or concept that is pushing modern design forward." We are excited to be the recipients of this award.

Thank you to all those Harvest Dome 2.0 Kickstarter Supporters who have contributed to our current campaign to fund the barge to bring the Dome to Gowanus. We still have nine days remaining to reach our goal. The Governors Island Trust has stipulated that we use a much more expensive barge to take the Dome off the Island than the one we came in on and that we must take the piece off the Island before the end of the month one way or the other. Please help us keep the Dome and bring it to the Gowanus to celebrate the Waterways imminent clean-up.

Update #14

Help Bring the Dome to Gowanus

Comment

Dear All Harvest Dome 2.0 Backers,

Please help us bring Harvest Dome 2.0 to Gowanus.

We have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to fund the barge required by the Governors Island Trust  to take the Dome from Governors Island to the Gowanus Canal, in collaboration with the Gowanus Canal Conservancy and  the Gowanus Dredgers. Our campaign is now live, and we only have TWO WEEKS to raise the funds.

 And please spread the word! 

 All the best,

Amanda & Alex



Update #13

COME RIDE THE WAVES OF NEW YORK HARBOR TO ESCORT THE HARVEST DOME TO GOWANUS

Comment

THE HARVEST DOME IS MOVING TO THE GOWANUS CANAL AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!  Harvest Dome - Architectural League - donation link  

1. We need volunteers to lift the dome over the ferry launch and onto the barge—about 50ft distance in all. If you are free to help next Tuesday afternoon, October 15, please email us at info@sloarchitecture.com 

2. Your donations are essential, yet again. While the Harvest Dome floats serenely in calm waters, transporting the Dome on the tidal currents around New York Harbor must be done by barge, which can be costly. We are therefore reaching out to you now to help us make the Dome's upcoming leg of the waterway journey possible. The Architectural League is our Harvest Dome not-for-profit fiscal sponsor and all donations are tax-deductible. Contributing to making the Gowanus voyage of the Harvest Dome a success is easy, and can be done by clicking on the following link Harvest Dome - Architectural League - donation link Where it says "To earmark your donation to a specific project" please note the project "Harvest Dome." 

Thank you!
