HUDSON

 
In a sense, ecological design is really just the unfolding of place through the hearts and minds of its inhabitants … Without local knowledge, places erode.
— Sim van der Ryn & Stuart Cowan, 1996

RIVER HOUSE PROJECT

RIVER HOUSE PROJECT: “The River House Project reclaims a turn-of-the-century elementary school to create a state-of-the-art work studio facility in the historic City of Hudson, NY for film professionals and other creative enterprises… Founders musician Melissa Auf der Maur and filmmaker Tony Stone are actively engaged in the cultural and economic shifts taking place in Hudson, and are committed to creating a mindful and dynamic creative industry in Hudson.” In May 2019, the River House Project opened its doors to the public on Memorial Day weekend for an open house event with its first installation of art titled UPSTREAM. While the building is not open to the public except for such events, the River House Project website provides more information. We visited the UPSTREAM event and photographed the building’s beautifully renovated space. LINK TO PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE RIVER HOUSE PROJECT
