Dakota Dreamin’ is Live!

The Dakota is a new model neighborhood that will bring the best of Auburn’s local slow craft qualities together in a unique community setting. Featuring a riverside performing arts stage, native plant rescue nursery, harvest gardens, and wildcrafted galleries, the Dakota is a place you’ll want to stay past sunset.¬† Mobile Studio partnered with Developer and Custom Builder, Michael Murray, in fall 2013 to dream a bright future for the Dakota. Led by Professor Jocelyn Zanzot, Master of Landscape Architecture, students explored the potential of the Dakota as a sustainable and aesthetic neighborhood from the macro-scale of the 78-acre site within its urban context to the micro-scale of the home garden. The collaborations featured in this short film will be cultivated¬† and extended this spring as we build the first phases of this delightful neighborhood in north Auburn, between the city and the Saugahatchee!
