Designed by SF-based artist Jay Nelson, the Golden Gate is a modern electric camper car made with fiberglass, epoxy resin, plywood, glass, bike parts, and an electric motor.

Revamped Airstream trailer by Burton Baldridge

With a last minute deadline, architect Burton Baldridge transformed a decaying trailer into a modern green home for Stubb's, an Austin, Texas club. Baldridge teamed up with Branson Fustes of Pilgrim Building Company to work on the interiors and building custom furniture, such as a bar on one end.
