Penn Praxis at Southeast by Southeast

PennDesign students Doug Breuer, Clay Gruber and Allison Koll collaborated with Mural Arts Program’s Shira Walinsky for WasteNot: a Penn Praxis Social Impact Project that brought together designers, community members and industry partners to collaboratively design and install the infrastructure of a community garden at SouthEast by SouthEast (SExSE), an activated storefront and community hub in southeast Philadelphia. A scaffold structure, bench, and long raised planter were built in the backyard of SExSE using repurposed wood sourced by RAIR at Revolution Recovery.
