Social experiments are typically out-of-the-box, but one group has decided to take it to the next level at a local diner. The REO Eats Project has made it their mission to reboot the old Dalmation's Firehouse Grill in Michigan over the course of 90 days.
More than a dozen people showed up to the old diner to learn more about the project this week, the Lansing State Journal reports. Participants, ranging from artists to architects, will use social networking as their main form of communication. Through sites such as Twitter and Facebook, REO Eats Project members will work on creating a new theme, name, menu and design.
"The team is open to any and all suggestions, regardless of how crazy they might sound," REO team member, Paul Jaques told the newspaper. "We have no idea what the outcome will be, but that's what makes this project so exciting."
Individuals who have obtained a degree in interior design or have experience in the field are valuable assets to projects such as REO Eats. Interior design jobs are expected to grow by 19 percent by 2018, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
