Tour: How'd You Build That?

Monday, July 29, 2019
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM


How and Why: Two exclusive, after-hours, behind-the-scenes tours to get underneath the Lawn and inside the minds of unique place-based experiences.

Ever look at a unique structure like Lawn and wonder HOW in the world it was built? 

Who is behind getting something like this built? How many people did it take? What kind of engineering goes into it?

Put on a hard hat and go “underground” with Tim Berryman, former project manager at Hensel Phelps Construction Co., to learn how engineers and contractors took the Lawn’s undulating surface, observation tower, and entrance bridges from concept to a built, immersive experience. This tour is repeated on July 15August 12, and August 26.

Wonder WHY build something like this in the first place?  Explore this and similar questions on July 22 and August 19
