Just about every designer, architect, builder or creative I've ever known wants to make a difference. I'm no different. One of the reasons design and construction is so interesting to me is how it can positively impact other people and nature. To do my part, I'm always getting involved with projects that can foster communities around a love for the natural world. One of the projects I'm the proudest of is the Rain Park. If you don't know about the Rain Park, I've got info about it on the Project page of this website and I"ll add a few links in this blog. We designed and built the Rain Park about 2 years ago. My kids love going to it, and I've had tons of other people tell me how much they love it too. It's incredible during every season. I've had the chance to go to it this winter, and I made a couple of videos about it. The videos are on the chambersdesign Youtube page, but if you follow the link, you can watch them here too.
The video below gives you a quick overview of the Rain Park and what it does. Sorry for the thumbnail...not my best photo ever!
The video below goes into more detail about the Rain Park, shows you how to know if your plants survived the winter, explains the benefits of active green infrastructure and talks about what really makes spring start.
The Rain Park is an incredible catalysis for community building. We've had dozens of people help make it a success. We will be onsite March 17, 2019 at 2pm to do some spring cleanup. The address 5 Mead St, South Orange, NJ 07079.
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.
