We were to sketch,diagram, draft, and photograph thebuilding in relation to three words: threshold, promenade, and arrival. The building assigned to my group was Blegen (Classics Library).

From this drawing, I crafted a 12 x 12construction out of basswood. Axon ConstructionFrom the basswood construction we were to create an item out of a material of our choosing that became something other and saidsomething more about thebuilding. Made of a two tone bain board. CM 7InsertUnit WallThis was a large group project in which we were to create a screen wall made of the same unit and that unit only. The screen was to have at least three differentorientations and each orientation was to be fifty percent solid and fifty percent void. The units could be made of any material of the groups choosing. Group Members: Michael Ferguson, Lexi Schmidt, Kevin Goldstein, Ali Chidester, Ben Blake, Yicong Wang, Ashlyn Farwell,Savanah Lee, Daham MarapaneCM8CM 96 by 6 Bristol, ChipboardProposals CM10After one unit was chosen, the design was further developed and material studies were executed todetermine what would be most effective. IterationsCM 11Unit Wall Final 3/4 MDF1/2 PlywoodLiving WallEach section of the studio was to create an eight foot by eight foot construction made of only two by fours and half inch thick MDF. Each section had to work with their neighbors to coordinate possible connections and to create unity. Within these constructions, we were to focus on promenade, view, and rest.
