28 SEPT 20 | LOOK BACK : 2012, 2011, & 2010


2020 marks the 20 year anniversary of WORKSHOP8, and when it comes to celebrations, the W8 team goes all out. We are putting together a SCRAPBOOK page which will take us all the way back to WORKSHOP8’s inception in 2000 (when it was called VaST).

Our blog series, “LOOK BACK,” will highlight blocks of time. In this post we LOOK BACK at 2012, 2011 & 2010 — the “born again” for WORKSHOP8 in which:

  • we competed for and WON Paisano Green Community,
  • Joseph Vigil was named 2012 AIA Architect of the Year,
  • construction began on the extensive South Lowell Rehab,
  • and most importantly, “WORKSHOP8” was born!!

Take note of the icon meanings above as you scroll through our recent history. If you want to know more about the project or event, most of the images are links that will take you down the rabbit hole — a place I find myself going often.

My fingers are crossed that we can throw a big party on January 8th, 2021 to celebrate in person with all of our clients, consultants, and friends!


To Be Continued!
