In December 2011, Ed Wall of Project Studio led a team, with Christian Gabriel of Thomas Balsley Associates, in the final stage of the Des Moines Water Works Park Competition. Room60 joined the team as visualisation and presentation design consultants. Producing a number of animated thumbnail visuals and forming an interactive presentation for delivery to the judging panel.
Project Studio put together an ambitous proposal that was only made possible by a fantastic London/US based team including Christian Gabriel (Thomas Balsley Associates), Brett Douglas (Genus), Fred Schwartz (Frederic Schwartz Architects), Steven Handel (Green Shield Ecology), John Paul Goedken (JP-SE), Mark Land (Snyder Associates), Bryan Bertrand (CPMI), Tim Marshall (ETM), Helena Rivera (A Small Studio), and Matt Parker and Leo Thom (Room60). With the design critique and stunning drawings of Aaron Carpenter, Harry Bix, and Joe Sanders.
Room60 are currently in the process of combining the animated thumbnails and other media produced by the team into a short animated film showcasing the proposals for the project.
