All Weather Garden
Location: Bronx, NY
Client: Concourse House
A Collaboration with Design Advocates, baao studio, and Studio For
A first phase of interactive hands-on workshops designed for women and their young children helped everyone explore their five senses and initiate the formation of five architectural spaces in the garden. These spaces expanding the client's ability to host future workshops while also exploring new ways of seeing shade and sun without having to interrupt the flow of the activities when it rains or snows.
