The Project -
As a draftsman/designer with WED Enterprizes, Walt Disney's architectural department, to develope details and create working drawings
for a contemporary restaurant at the entrance to Tomorrowland, Walt Disney World, Florida.
During the time I worked on this project, I was asked to do working drawings for Kitchen layouts, diningroom/stage soffit details, a staff access gate, and other details.
In December of 2012, I had the opportunity to revisit the project which I found remarkably unchanged during the intervening 40 years.

Tomorrowland Terrace stage area, Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida, USA, 2012.
This soffit area that incorporated speakers over a stage area was the first "design" work I was given at WED.
The wall finish has changed since, but the soffit and speaker area is as I designed it, however, it looks
like it is no longer used as a stage for bands.

This photo includes more recent updates from the 40 year-old project I worked on.
Still, the basic plan seems to have held up well over the years.

This was another design element I worked on... we needed a fiberglass gate that would look like an extension of the concrete wall.
