A Day in the Sand with LEAP and Junipero Serra Elementary!

On Saturday October 15, Nibbi partnered with EHDD Architects and KPFF Engineers for LEAP’s annual “Sandcastle Classic” at Ocean Beach.  LEAP, a non-profit organization that raises funds for arts education in Bay Area schools, enlists “design-build” teams of contractors, architects and engineers and pairs them with students from a local elementary school.  The various teams compete by building sand sculptures at Ocean Beach, based on a special theme.  This year, 27 teams built huge sand sculptures which dotted the northern end of the beach, near the Cliff House.

This year’s theme was “Makers and Movers – The People and Things that Move Us.” Together with students from Junipero Serra Elementary, the Nibbi/EHDD/KPFF/JS team built a “ThingamaBOBatron,” depicting a fantasy factory that magically builds all sorts of objects.

You can check out photos of all the sand sculptures at LEAP’s Facebook page.
