Last Sunday (Oct. 27, 2019), we won the first-ever Idea Competition held by Montclair Design Week for our project called Watchung Plaza Plaza. Watchung Plaza Plaza is a placemaking project aimed at rebooting Watchung Plaza to be more creative, safe, connected and desirable place for pedestrians, lovers of design and nature. We hope it is only the very beginning of reimagining the larger ward of Montclair into a flagship example of a more livable, sustainable neighborhood. As the winners of the competition, we received a $1000 grant from the Awesome Montclair, a local branch chapter of the Awesome Foundation (a global community advancing the interest of awesome in the universe)
The goal is to make this blog a resource for helpful tips and sustainable ideas. I create original content that shows projects in progress and the behind-the-scenes of installation. And, I try to have as much fun as I can doing it.
