Current Charrette:

In order to actually keep this thing moving along the fine folks at LAUNCH Cleveland have joined w/ |re|decle to celebrate the community based idea of taking back the streets. With this in mind a whole new series of charrettes is being offered at LAUNCH based upon the premise of studying existing street conditions and questioning what would make them better. Now that LAUNCH (with its much smoother running web presence) is offering hosting space this site will begin to dwindle towards nothingness as the new location takes over. Do not fret, the events here are being archived and saved for posterities sake. In the mean time jump on over to the new website and take a look at the new charrettes.


Updates appear below in chronological order. You may organize posts by specific charrettes (to the right) or browse through them in order of posting.

Charrette 2007.10.01

reDesign Cleveland Charrette 2007.10.01

Alright, this month I am tacking on the charrette to an event happening in town this week sponsored by a group of designers who are basically attempting to do the same thing I am doing right here but with markedly more success. You know how I determined that? Because there is more then one person paying attention.

It is called LAUN-CHair

location: Buckeye Beer Engine.
intent: Temporal exploraration of temporary exterior furniture. Cardboard furniture to be designed and constructed on the patio of a location to be revealed closer to the event date. Pieces will be critiqued according to a surprise sety of criteria to be revealed to the particpants at the beginning of the event. This could be a theme, an overall idea or a surprise material.

overall timeline:
2007.10.03 - Charrette release
2007.10.07 - LAUN-CHair event

Lets see what happens and how it affects what is going on here.
