I am thrilled and honored to announce that I received a Guggenheim Fellowship this year. The fellowship will assist in a contemplative floating installation that will serve as a more permanent and accessible food forest.
I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to continue building this throughout the year, alongside a talented group of individuals who constantly inspire me. I appreciate the chance to work with a wonderfully talented cohort of Pratt Institute Graduate Architecture (GAUD) students co-designing the elements of this new structure that will expand the vision of Swale, a proof-of-concept floating edible forest on a barge. Thank you to everyone involved in this journey! I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this project. Please be in touch if you are interested in being involved.
