Fruit Loop

We were struck by this mimosa tree on site two, just beyond the current tool shed. The ring around it marks the natural footpath formed by locals (mainly Carlos) collecting fruit. Where the fruit drops, people follow. Here, through this dirt ring underfoot, the tree's natural preservation area and canopy drip edge comes to life. No paper diagrams here! Like every other project we've taken on in studio, tree preservation remains central to the design for the new shed/community center.
