lamesadevenn: Part Seven
In this series, trace the story of lamesadevenn, a green live/work space in Santa Fe, New Mexico, created for two community groups, La Mesita and La Resolana. Rather than simply becoming a building that addresses the structural needs of the groups, lamesadevenn seeks to embody their values of sustainability, experiential education, and community involvement. Part 7: Maya Tile.
It’s been a bumpy ride, to say the least: lamesadevenn’s quixotic quest to create the Rancho, a building that generates community and collaboration, is now entering year three, and there’s plenty of work ahead. Fortunately, as architect and main project manager Christian Alba pushes forward, he’s been encountering like-minded spirits who get what he’s after. People like Bethany Antolewicz and Ryan Helean, the visionary artists and entrepreneurs from a one-of-a-kind business called Maya Tile. Photo by Celia Santos/Celia Luz Photography.
