main projects that Loralyn worked on in the month of August included the green roof bus shelter and residential rain gardens. This was a big month for the green roof bus shelter, as Loralyn prepared for the first of several City of Pittsburgh Art Commission hearings where the project was presented to the Commission for conceptual approval. There was good constructive critiscm from the Commission in regards to the project, and Loralyn and her design team will make edits for the second hearing (for final approval). August is also when Loralyn began design on her residential rain gardens funded through the Heinz Endowments. Two of these rain gardens will be located at the Borland EcoVillage co-housing site in East Liberty, and those gardens plus a large cistern (funded through the same grant), will mitigate 100% of the roof runoff of 7 co-housing town homes!
