Lake Flatonians Ashley Heeren, Jamie Sartory, Grace Bowdewyns, and Kristin Walsh recently volunteered their skills to the Lighter! Quicker! Cheaper! community charrette joining teams to design small scale place-making interventions at a number of public sites throughout San Antonio.  One of the proposals will be selected for further development and implementation by the city.  You can catch a glimpse of the proposals and vote here for your favorite, as well as listen to inteviews with Ashley and Jamie expounding upon their proposals.

Projects include a street closure between two parks, a bat roost,a fleet of tiny libraries deployed throughout the city, a community garden, and a dog park.

The work will be on display at an open house Thursday, July 26, 6:30pm-8pm at the Center for Architecture at the Pearl Brewery.
