Please Be Seated: University of Maryland AIAS Design Project!

Please be seated, this one is going to be good! University of Maryland Architecture students from the AIAS and USGBC Maryland chapters are working with NDC to design and build 8 benches for a memorial garden site in Prince George’s County, MD. The first prototype was unveiled last Tuesday with rave reviews. Materials were donated by the local architectural salvage resource, Second Chance.   Stay tuned for more project progress and updates.
