Construction is underway for Yestermorrow’s collaborative community design/build structure for Hubbard Park, in downtown Montpelier. Working with the Montpelier Parks Commission, eight Yestermorrow students are designing and building a unique moldering toilet structure set to be unveiled Friday, August 13 at 4 PM. The public is welcome to see the latest Yestermorrow public creation.
Led by instructors and design/build mavens Steve Badanes, Jim Adamson and Bill Bialosky, students meet with a client, work with site constraints, propose a design, build a full-scale project and install it on-site all within a two week timeframe. Past projects have included park pavilions, trail shelters, bus stops, and village green bandshells. The project is part of Yestermorrow’s mission to support non-profits and community organizations by providing design and building skills through its class projects. Yestermorrow is always interested in new opportunities to work with communities in the area and welcomes ideas and proposals for future design/build projects.
Directions to Hubbard Park: From Elm St. (Rte. 12) take Winter St. into the park, at the Y stay right, and keep straight on the gravel road. The project location is at the end of the gravel road at the “7” Fireplaces loop. See map below.
