SDS Musings

Fall Travel

Posted by:

We are gearing up for Fall here at SDS and we have lots of travel plans in the next few weeks.  First we are headed to Louisville, KY to check in on a few of our projects.  We are especially proud of the design we did for the Kosair Children’s Hospital House at Norton Commons.  We donated the plans for this home to help raise money for the local Children’s Hospital.  Tickets are being sold for a $100 for you to win a chance of owning this home.  You can see the early drawings of the home here.  We hope to be posting some new pictures of the home under construction next week.

After our stop in Louisville we are heading to South Bend, IN and Notre Dame for a conference on Seaside, Fl.  Seaside is the poster child for a movement of planning in the United States known as New Urbanism.  The conference is taking a look at the 30 years since the founding of Seaside and promises to be an excellent conference.  SDS is a strong supporter of the Congress for the New Urbanism you can find out what this organization does for the built environment here.

After that trip we are heading to Peniza, Italy with the Seaside Institute for two weeks.  We are very excited about this trip both for its location but also the group of people who are attending this event.  We will be attempting to blog during our trip if time permits otherwise we will post snippets  when we return.

And lastly we will be heading to East Beach in Norfolk, VA to work with some existing clients on designs for their new homes.  East Beach is a great community designed by DPZ.  While in Norfolk I will be taking a side trip over to Williamsburg so look for some drawings and photos from that day of inspiration.



And all of that just takes us thru the end of October…So watch this space for updates and photos.  You can also follow us on twitter and Facebook from the links below.
