Landon Bone Baker Architects has partnered with archi-treasures since 1997. archi-treasures is an arts-based community building organization that uses participatory design and build processes to develop public space. They partner artists, architects and designers with community groups such as public housing residents, school students, and community gardeners, to engage in collaborative projects. Past projects have resulted in colorful benches, gardens, banners, murals, community events and fairs, mosaics, and outdoor movies. Project possibilities include any concept that uses archi-treasures resources to bring art, architecture, and/or design to shared community space.
The following LBBA projects included work by archi-treasures:
• BJ Wright Courts
• Hansberry Square
• Harold Washington Co-Op
