Playing with Landscape
Sorry, my phone cannot connect to the internet and the weirdest thing was two draft posts I've published went missing. I will write about island hopping experiences when I am able to get my phone to work. In the meantime, here's a recent project that I completed for the love of doing it.
When I came back, I was asked to offer a concept design for a playground in the community where I grew up. I was approached by a neighbor and after declining had a surprise visit from the community president (who I can't say no to). A neglected parcel of land will be put into good use to have an area for kids to play and families to bond. There will be a contemporary designed pergola with picnic tables and barbecue pits. The committee will propose this layout to the mayor for funding. I declined at first because I really don't do landscape design. I was also hesitant because I only had two days in Manila; 1) to spend time with my baby and 2) finalize meetings with the architect before my husband and I travel again.
I sat on the table this morning and started sketching this while my Mom looked after my baby. I finished it and you're the first to see this. Ha,..this is pro bono work as a way of giving back to the community. I do hope they are granted their budget to be able to execute this.
Catch up with you soon.
Love & light,
