Tyner is a graduate student in NC State's Masters of Landscape Architecture with interests in landscape asset management, community design, park design, and urban design. Tyner has pursued implementing a parklet since 2012 and is extremely excited for the opportunity the raleigh [ ] space parklet project will provide for visitors and citizens alike in Raleigh, NC.
Bob has an abounding interest in places, spaces and people. He’s been in and out of Raleigh since 2000, working on his degrees. He moved back to town to start grad school in 2012 after several years of commercial fishing and habitat restoration work in Alaska. He’s psyched for this parklet, because he wants to see Raleigh’s creative juices let out when this mini space is turned loose!
Pam opened Deco Raleigh with a focus on promoting local artisans and creating community downtown. She got into retail after nearly 30 years as a non-profit executive. She currently serves on the Raleigh Downtown Plan Advisory Committee and has become an outspoken advocate for a dynamic, creative and visionary downtown.
Prof. Delcambre’s summer session Landscape Architecture course is built around the students creating structural models and design proposals for this parklet project. Carla’s passion for teaching is focused on environmental and ecological issues, particularly those related to sustainable design, storm water management and brown field redevelopment.
Emma and Amanda are rising sophomores in the NCSU College of Design. Amanda is majoring in graphic design, and Emma is majoring in architecture. They filmed and produced the video for this project and serve as members of the leadership team.
Julie Schmidt and Alison Rogers of yellowDog : creative have worked closely with Deco Raleigh since 2012 and graciously donated their time to developing a logo, website and promotional materials for raleigh [ ] space. They are invaluable members of both the Deco and parklet teams.
