thanks to our generous hosts

We want to send a big thank you to HKS Architects and SNOB Wine Bar for opening up their spaces for our weekly meetings. We really appreciate having a big table and room for all of us to gather!

We're looking for a place the week of September 28th for an info meeting so if you have any ideas or want to open up your space to us, please leave a comment below!

project 2: Park(ing) Day

I'm not sure that any group has spent as much time as we have trying to determine the best location for our Park(ing) Day spot. We're an interesting case because we're essentially homeless - so where do we go? Amongst the architects? Downtown with the tourists? Mission with young folks like us?

We're hoping that our park can serve as a launch pad for our board to come together with a great design and show San Francisco what we're capable of. I don't want to reveal too much about the current design ideas but they incorporate - interesting ground covers, shade, graffiti art, design therapy and reused objects!

project 1: Glide Memorial

Things are moving forward with Glide. We're waiting on having them fill out our program questionaire. We hope to receive the finished ones from their managers some time next week!
