11 May

Last night, James, Allison, Page and I set up the new exhibit at studio Main. So I wanted to show a few teaser images. We have a series of student drawings and models for different home and business designs and even a light rail station. There is also a scale model of the neighborhood. Come check it out in person tonight!





In addition to the student work we are also presenting the runway designs from this year’s Wine and Design Fashion Show. Wine and Design is an event put on every year by the local American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) chapter to raise money for Our House, one of the local shelters. As part of the event, teams of interior designers are designated two materials, (a soft material like carpet samples or wall coverings and a hard material like ceramic tile or laminate samples) which they randomly select and have to design an ensemble for the fashion show. This year’s entries will be on display as well tonight!

But the main attraction for tonight is the student drawings and models for South Main. I went back down to Studio MAIN this afternoon and took some shots. Now I know some residents might be a little taken aback by the architectural style, but this is a student project, encouraging creativity and thinking outside of the box. It’s designed to create an exciting and engaging neighborhood, whiches mixes new and old in an area that has seen neglect, abandonment and even a natural disaster in past years. Recently the area has seen a renewed interest and the students have come up with some really exciting concepts to help re-energize the neighborhood!
