Via Andrew Frey from the Townhouse Center:
You are invited to a presentation of free plans for a Miami building prototype on Tue, Nov 19 from 6 to 8 PM at Mansini’s Pizza House in Little Havana. The goal is to help small property owners and builders imagine how they can profit from a small site, and save money on design costs. The plans are by award-winning architecture firm ISA (in collaboration with Townhouse Center and supported by the Knight Foundation) and will be presented by ISA founder Brian Phillips. The brief presentation will be followed by a panel — featuring Fernando Arencibia of RE/MAX, Jeanette Blanch of Continental Bank, Hernando Carrillo of HacArchitects, and Gavin McKenzie of McKenzie Construction - and audience Q&A to discuss the plans and opportunities and challenges of small projects. The plans can be downloaded at http://hiresmiami.tumblr.com/
The free event is open to the public, especially non-developers, but please register in advance by email to LHMAmiami@gmail.com
