Congratulations to Alsu Sadrieva and the DBR team on an amazing installation for TED2017! It was a hectic but fulfilling week - particularly for Alsu, who was at the TED conference as a part of her winning prize.

None of this would have been possible without the hard work and long nights put in by our DBR volunteers. For the last two months, the team was in the shop several times a week working on design refinement, fabrication, and construction of the structure. Alsu travelled from Kazan, Russia to join us in Vancouver for the last push in April, and thanks to the many hands at work, we had the pavilion installed and ready just in time for TED. 

Thank you also to our partners and sponsors Interfor, BC Housing, Structurlam, Adera Development, Filzfelt, and Ema Peter Photography! We were able to bring PAUSE to life with their support, and we are incredibly thankful for it.
