La Cosmimosa | Trans-Pecos Festival
Design Build Adventure had a very moving presence at this year’s Trans-Pecos Festival in Marfa, thanks to DBA mobile-making genius Spence Kellum, who designed and built a kinetic sculpture called “La Cosmimosa.” Jack and his Marfa summer Camp DBA campers found street sweeper brushes and Kellum created the mobile’s bright pink “blossoms” in a binary “tree.” Special shout out to Taylor Tehan who helped build the mobile, and to the DBA crew who helped erect it at El Cosmico.

Nak Armstrong | Tribeza Style Week
Jeweler Nak Armstrong stopped by our shop last week to check out the steel-and-glass displays we designed and fabricated to showcase Armstrong’s one-of-a-kind jewels during Tribeza Style Week 2013. DBA’s Philip Burkhardt and James Rosinbaum were integral to this project’s success. Here’s a link to the Culture Map Austin article about the event.

Real Ale Brewing Company | Great American Beer Festival
How many lives does a whiskey barrel have? Three, according to us. Real Ale Brewing Co. asked Design Build Adventure to fabricate the Blanco brewery’s kiosk for the Great American Beer Festival, Oct. 10-12.  We fashioned a proper bar using reclaimed whiskey barrels that Real Ale had used to make its craft beer. We wish Real Ale — a proud sponsor of our heavy metal camps benefitting HAAM — the best as they compete in this granddaddy of a beer fest. Cheers!

Rockin’ out at Voodoo Fest
In November, the DBA crew will head over to the Big Easy for Voodoo Music Experience to ensure their months of design work results in a stellar experience for festival goers who are camping on site. Design Build Adventure was charged with the design and site management of Voodoo Music Experience’s VIP and general admission camping areas. The VIP “Loa” campground offers furnished safari tents with electricity, while the general admission “Ritual” camping area is BYOT (bring your own tent). From medical and security stations to bathrooms, electrical plans and communal lounge areas, Design Build Adventure has staged it all. Now they just have to make sure their vision comes to fruition — and catch some good music in the process, of course.

Construction begins at Venable Hill
Jack Sanders is working closely with his client and Stephenville, Texas, contractor Faron Danley to remodel the existing 1901 and 1951 former church buildings into a wedding chapel and event center. We always love the demolition phase of the process — as the building appreciates the removal of all the carpets and drywall and lets that beautiful old wood breathe again. Stay tuned — or get married there — in April 2014.
