Bandshell

In collaboration with Rebar, CMG Landscape Architecture, and the Black Rock Arts Foundation, One Hat One Hand proposed the Panhandle Bandshell for Scrap Eden SF, a project pairing three San Francisco park groups with artists to create temporary public sculptures.

Working with a zero-waste grant from the San Francisco Department of the Environment and the Neighborhood Parks Council, this Bandshell was revealed in the Panhandle in June 2007 with the aim of inspiring reclamation and reuse.

The Panhandle Bandshell was a full-scale, traditional bandshell constructed predominantly from recycled materials—including car hoods, circuit boards and plastic bottles. The project engaged community members by providing a stage for acoustic performances throughout the summer.

The Panhandle Bandshell Project has won numerous prestigious design awards and eventually found a permanent home in rural Washington state.
