This summer, the depot is undergoing a first phase of construction work, primarily to stabilize and protect the building. The work scope will include structural repairs, a new roof, repairs to the exterior and a coat of paint, as well as preliminary plumbing and the beginnings of demising walls between different areas.
CCA’s semester ended a couple of weeks ago. After the exhibition and performances at the depot on April 21, students of CCA’s Building Narrative class buckled down and worked to document and summarize their projects. Their instructors, Melissa Martin and Alexis Petty, are in the process of compiling this documentation and putting it together in the form of a book. I’ll create another post when the book is completed and printed to let everyone know how they can see it or order a copy.
Thanks, everyone, for your participation and collaboration in this really wonderful class – especially to all of the community members who met and talked with the students during their research.
