2015 Annual Bug Boil
We couldn’t have asked for better weather for this year’s Bug Boil! With our new location at Brisbi’s on the Lakefront, Mark brought the “Bro” for group boat tours of the marina and Lake Pontchartrain. Sometimes happiness is as simple sunshine, waterfront, and hot crawfish in south Louisiana.
2015 Eskew+Dumez+Ripple Day of Service
Recognizing that creating better communities requires more than simply designing good buildings, our studio implemented a skills-based service program to benefit local community organizations. Structured in the same vein as the 1%—a pro-bono design oriented program established in 2005 by Los Angeles-based Public Architecture—the Day of Service united design and civic leadership to analyze and address social and urban inequality with the power of good design.
