Several projects in the Alabama Street studio involved ways of staying warm in groups. The studio space was huge and had minimal heat so warmth was a concern for us as the weather in Michigan changed from summer to fall to winter.

The ponchos are made in modular units. Each module is attatchable and detachable as the wearer decides to join-up with another person for shared warmth, communication, and space. The units attach with velcro fascening strips along the edges.

Plaza ponchos could be made available in public plazas in cities. Patio ponchos keep company warm in the suburbs.
