TIME Project in El Paso

BY RIDA ASFAHANI
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 10, 2015

“We're really trying to change the way things are done in El Paso by letting people know that density is a good thing, letting people know that investing in local talent is something that can be really nice and really beneficial for… the people around you.”

In The TIME Project in El Paso from PechaKucha Night El Paso’s 11th Volume, presenter Rida Asfahani describes Root Architect's TIME project. An urban density, mixed use, this spectacular third space brings people together in west El Paso. Using locally sourced materials, commissioning local talent, and trying to overall draw from the local culture, the project successfully managed to create a space that was unique.
