Adam was one of two featured speakers at DesignXRI's August Clambake, hosted at The Avenue Project in Providence, RI.
He presented healing landscape projects for Yale University, XiangYa 5th Hospital and local projects 10,000 SUNS, The Shack, and a new unsolicited riverfront proposal called the "Providence Gateway Park". Artist and fabricator Monica Shinn was the other presenter.
“THE SHACK” is a new seafood shack/biergarten in the heart of former I-195 land, and adjacent to the Wexford Innovation Center under construction. A small transportable "shack" will be set in a garden of three distinct zones, diminishing in constructed materiality and recalling the coastal context of the project .
The project was designed in close collaboration with the Dune Brothers (the restaurant operators) Stay Silent PVD (Event Planners), JP Murton (Developing Partner), Fuss and O'neil Engineers, and the I-195 District Commission. More about the project here.
Adam was appointed by Governor Gina Raimondo in July 2017 to join one of 10 other voting members. The boards was established in 1985 to:
- Establish, preserve, and recognize scenic roads
- Protects - culture, scenic beauty, and natural resources for recreational enjoyment and education
- Establishes guidelines for maintenance and identification.
Adam looks forward to adding his perspective from a Landscape Architecture background to help cultivate the great asset to the state the scenic roadways provide.
The 10,000 SUNS Project is well under and way and Director Adam E. Anderson was recently interviewed by Take Magazine as well as Providence Monthly.
