The Street Seats design challenge invited participants to reimagine the public bench. Entries were submitted from around the world. There were 200+ entries from 24 countries on 6 continents and from 22 U.S. states. Kyle and Alyssa Trulen's team entry (A Quiet Place to Sit and Rest) was selected as the Grand Prize winner. The project featured thermally modified ash and pine from HDG Building Materials and vendor partner Thermory USA.
