Where I'll Be
A diverse group of community members responded to the call for volunteers to participate in the Bend Design Challenge, a project using design thinking methods to come up with practical, creative potential solutions to Bend’s housing dilemma. Team members include:
- Greg Amanti: Artisan and mixed media artist. Was once almost killed by an abstract onion created by Frank Stella when it fell from a ceiling.
- Heather Crank: Motion graphics artist. Former belly dancer who grew up in Bend.
- Steve Lamerdin: General contractor. Works to support his multiple human-powered recreational addictions.
- Bridget McGinn: Marketing director and freelance writer. Completed the Paris marathon years ago, loves beagles and kdramas.
- Robin Sullivan: School administrator and educator. Built her own net-zero home as well as a few log cabins.
- Rachel Stemach: Architect dedicated to community and historic preservation. Has been a Bend resident for 30 years.
- Stacey Stemach: Architect specializing in sustainability and design. Refused to volunteer his personal legos for Bend Design.
ML Vidas: Architect with a focus in sustainability. Happily provided hundreds of vintage legos from her collection for the project.
