Bungalower has learned that the organization raised enough money to save the Brise Soleil. Now they are working to raise funding to turn the iconic features into public art.
The building is being torn down to make way for the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center. The panels will be removed before the demolition and as many as possible saved.
The group had students submit ideas on how to turn the panels into public art. The winning design is shown below.
A site for this has not been determined but the group says they are working with the City to find the best location.
