Bartholomew Pool was completed in May 2014 as a design/build project for the City of Austin led by Chasco Constructors; Architecture by Carter Design Associates; Landscape Architecture by Design Workshop; and pool design by Water Design.
As a Project Designer/Architect employed by Carter Design Associates, Davey McEathron's efforts focused on the buildings, shade structures and signage, as well as assisting in the project management from the conception through construction.
This project was designed to be very sustainable, using as many local, durable and recycled materials as possible, a light colored roof and concrete, and natural ventilation in the bath houses.
The Moustache Ride was a playful , temporary installation, functioning as a piece of street art and a see saw for waiting customers at East Austin's El Chilito taco stand. The see saw was built from discarded phone booths, plywood, steel and covered with rhino liner - a covering typically sprayed on truck beds for weather protection. The sunglasses and seat backs are made of wood burned using a japanese weatherizing process called shou sugi ban.
The project won awards from the Austin Chronicle and The American Institute of Archtiects - Austin.; and traveled to SXSW and the annual ball for the Austin Facial Hair Club during it's short life.
This was a project by ¡el grupo!, a creative collective in Austin Texas - Davey McEathron, John Algood, Nicolas Rivard and Charles Melanson.
