Team Asylum is hosting an event at the Columbia Tower Club on Tuesday- August 25th
We are very excited to to see the making of this film to bring an important message to the community!
We are currently looking for a structural engineer to help verify the plausibility of this project. In addition we are hoping to find building owners who are willing to explore the idea of setting up our beta module on their roof. We are also exploring the potential of using other under utilized space in the city. If you think you have a contact that might help with any of these pieces please feel free to reach out.
We have gotten 2 media contact buzzing about the project and are connecting them with people in the organization to drumm up more headlines. And we even have a council member potentially wanting to jump in and support. The support continues to build and we have just barely gotten started!
