Dog Days of Summer

Hope everyone is beating the heat. Work is as busy as ever here at WPA, but Zeke still managed to find a moment to kick back.

 

 

The Kiosk

Thom has been collaborating since January with 14 other architects, architectural interns, and students from around Virginia as part of the 2011 Emerging Leaders in Architecture program, an honors academy organized by the Virginia Society AIA. Part of this collaboration has been a study of the neighborhood of Manchester in Richmond, and the development of a Kiosk to serve as a physical point of conversation and engagement with the community. A portion of the Kiosk was built as a prototype by Thom, Dan Zimmerman, and Amrit Singh this past weekend in Charlottesville. The build will be installed in Manchester in September, and then put on display at this fall’s Architecture Exchange East in Richmond.

Public Art Bike Racks

The Downtown Norfolk Council commissioned various artists of Norfolk to install five artful, yet functional bike racks in downtown Norfolk.

 

Thom of WPA worked with Peter Johnston of 5forty Design inc. and won the commission from DNC to design and create “The Fork” and “The Buoy.”
