Walking On An Eggshell
June 3, 2017

Our Armadillo Vault is mentioned in The Economist by our collaborator and former Escobedo Group intern, Philippe Block of ETH Zurich and the Block Research Group (Zurich).  The comparison is made to the Armadillo being half the thickness of an eggshell at the equivalent size, while standing in compression and hold the weight of 2,000 pounds.  


The Contemporary Austin
'to see if time was there'
Anya Gallaccio's art installation
April 2017 - ongoing

We were commissioned to program, create construction drawings, fabricate and install the tree stump concept, as well as cutting, artistic placement and installation of the stone tiles atop the limestone tree trunk due to our technical design capabilities and our ability to cut the intricate patterning the artist created for her piece.  

The installation is on exhibit indefinitely at Laguna Gloria.  


LUXE DESIGN + INTERIORS
'Eye on Design'
Jan/Feb 2017

We are included in the Jan/Feb 'Eye on Design' issue of Luxe Interiors + Design magazine. 

David Escobedo: For the wood-screen sculpture's steel frame and the paneled wall in this Austin game room, we collaborated with the design team, remaining most integral in the project's technical aspects. What differentiates us is the ability to design the technical details required for sounds and precise fabrication of the [design] concept. Technical design, and the fabrication of that design, is our forté at the Escobedo Group. In general, I look at materials that make sense– not just for the project but for the bigger picture. Because we build projects that stand the test of time, the materials we use require a level of quality resulting in longevity and sustainable beauty.
