    Citizen Bridge is Staycationing at Pioneer Works in Red Hook June 22 & 29

    June 22 ( this Saturday!) PROTOTYPE VIEWING: 4-6PM
    159 Pioneer Street @ Imlay Street, Red Hook
     

    Citizen Bridge will debut a new design prototype from 4-6 pm at Pioneer Works.  If you haven't been to Red Hook yet this summer, or haven't yet visited the oasis that is Pioneer Works, please consider yourself invited to stop by! I've been working hard in collaboration with Brady Caldwell, Brad Isnard and Mandi Fung, recent graduates from Pratt's Architecture program, and with special consultation from Max Kufner to design and build this latest iteration of the project.  Special thanks to the staff at Recess and Pioneer Works for their support of this phase of the project.

    June 29 (next Saturday) LAUNCH at VALENTINO PIER: 1PM
    Starting from 159 Pioneer Street @ Imlay Street, Red Hook 

    After this weekend's viewing, Citizen Bridge will make its way down to Valentino Pier for a first launch into the water. Given the piece's size, it will be an ALL HANDS ON DECK event: the more the merrier. Please come help to join in the transport to Valentino Pier, and the trouble-shooting as we put it into and pull it out of the water. 

    We will start at Pioneer Works at 1pm, walking Citizen Bridge modules to the water. Expected round trip time is 90 minutes.
