PopUP Farm Stand… Unfolding HOPE!

If you missed our HOPE Likes Bikes Happy Hour celebration last weekend, then you missed the big announcement… we chose StudioMODO as the winner of the AIA Design Voice charrette and design competition!

As you can probably tell from the designs we highlighted last time, it was a hard choice. All of the teams put a lot of effort into their submissions, and we liked each of them for different reasons. However, we think StudioMODO’s “Unfolding HOPE” concept is best aligned with the Farm Stand project’s needs, and it’s hard to argue with the fact that it’s pretty awesome…

 

 

So, we’re already moving forward! We met with Clay Odom and Adam Owens yesterday to go over what we like and what we want to tweak, with lots of great ideas emerging about materials, logistics, and potential collaborations.

The HOPE Likes Bikes Happy Hour was also a huge success in building awareness about the project, developing relationships with bike and food enthusiasts, and raising some much needed project funding. Plus it was a lot of fun… so we’ll be sure to do more in 2013.

Stay tuned about future events, and we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop as the design progresses! You can also keep up with Clay on twitter as StudioMODO works on this project…
