Town Friday - Swarming at The Mildred Complex(ity) Project Space

TOWN FRIDAY, June 23, 2017
A Swarming
at The Mildred Complex(ity) Project Space
37b Main Street, Narrowsburg, NY 12764
6:00 – 8:00pm

We are wrapping up this week of phase one; a collaboration to design-and-build a small, vernacular SpringHouseIceHouse featuring solar energy, a spring-fed well, and local and site-sourced building material. This project will harness the attributes of sun, water, and earth; intentionally connecting permaculture principles to a longstanding need for sustainable and efficient food storage. We have begun the foundations of this creative exercise in adaptive reuse that conflates the historical vernacular, off-the-shelf technologies and emergent, low-tech methodologies. 

Please come for a reception for the team of this unusual vernacular architecture project at Mildred’s Lane.

Special thanks to Paul Bartow, Cameron Klavsen, Stan Pipkin, Alex Schecter, Gina Siepel, with fellows Elizabeth Pittard, Michelle Kelly Rogers, Shelley Spector, Will Staub, Jeff Tan, Sandy Williams and School of Visual Arts, New York City and University of Virginia McIntire Department of Art.
