"Fold Down" was the final open studio event of the Alabama Street studio project. On view in the studio was a proposal for a multi-purpose market/cultural venue in the neighborhood, an overview of various articulations of “community” from diverse academic disciplines, an inventory of things in the studio’s possession, a comparative analysis of local burritos, designs for Plaza Ponchos and a Forcefield Generator.

We also had on display the studio’s new mobile unit. The mobile unit is a converted 1979 Coleman Pop-up trailer (Gettysburg model). It has been retrofitted to house and transport the studio tools and equipment. The unit extends technical support to future events and demonstrates the studio’s intent to be temporarily sited.

Also on view was documentation of earlier studio projects and investigations including the swing thing, placements, displacements, the moving house, and projects generated by the civic studio department of forestry (in collaboration with Dan Peterman).
