THE START OF IT ALL...
RA's founding partners, Tima and Scott, first collaborated together as Master's Students at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles. The start of their decades long friendship and working relationship came with the designing and building of the Graduation Ceremony Pavillon for SCI-Arc. With a $500 budget, Tima and Scott designed and built a pavilion for pre and post-graduation ceremonies at the Westchester campus of SCI-Arc. Using donated fabric and aircraft mechanical fasteners, the entire pavilion was hand manufactured and assembled. The fencing expands to follow the passage of the sun on that specific day to allow for maximum shade for the ceremonies.
