The Parkwood Green project will be highlighted at the upcoming Civic By Design Forum. The forum, organized by DPZ's Tom Low, is dedicated this year to explore ideas to "retrofit, retool, and re-root Charlotte towards a relevant region of the future" (i.e. "to get back to the basic Rs") and has invited Rich Deming to speak this coming Tuesday about his vision for the Roofless Building (another R!).
Description and details:
Thinking INSIDE the box
What happens when you combine a boyhood dream of having a space of one's own, inside a shipping container, with a grown up vision for creating radically affordable, radically sustainable housing? Come hear Rich Deming, biofuels entrepreneur, evangelist for self-sufficiency and certified beekeeper, and DI Von Briesen, creative force behind the Center for Sustainability's Ecobox project, share their ideas for making Charlotte more civic by design.
