This is a throwback to 2007 for me, when I attended the two week design/build course led by Jersey Devil co-founders Steve Badanes and Jim Adamson, along with New York-based architect Bill Bialosky. I had the pleasure of seeing Steve at our ACSA Annual Conference in Miami a couple weeks ago and he reminded me that his Yestermorrow course, which starts on August 3, is currently open for registration.
Here are a few images from past years' courses. In my year, we designed and built a portable fruit stand for Shelburne Farms in Vermont, a nonprofit educational farm that you can visit, to stroll its walking trails, observe and take part in farm life, and pet the fuzzies. Our fruit stand was smaller than most of the projects here but it had the added constraint of being easily portable along Vermont's sometimes-bumpy roads for regular farmer's market events. The course is an amazing way to spend part of the summer, so I wanted to let you know in case you're thinking about putting in some time at Yestermorrow's bucolic Vermont campus.
