It’s all about MAKING!

It’s a Beautiful Day today!

My first class today, the Human Intelligence Enterprise with my favorite professor Patrick Winston. We always start the class with “What’s New?!” We watched a bit of Steve Job’s introduction of the IPhone and what a great presentation looks like and noted some key aspects that are important. We also looked at this video below… Have a look..

We discussed the Yahoo Chief Scott Thompson who allegedly faked a computer science degree on his CV. Winston advised us to NEVER lie on our resumes about our past. We also went through and rated the what felt like millions of papers over the semester.. After class was a busy one with meetings… and a Proposal Grant Writing Presentation.. It ended just as my class began.. so rush, rush, rush.. I had lunch in class..

My Materializing Design class… These are all the pieces we cut and molded yesterday (Sunday).. above are photos of My’s and George’s foundations. Really nice!

It’s assembly time.. we’re sorting our parts…

I didn’t count (but I can get) the total number of parts for the Pavilion…

Structure for the floor beginning to be assembled…

Structural ribs and interior plates coming together…

We are still trying to figure out the assembly.. since this will inform us about ways to do the same on site with the full scale Pavilion..

Quite an exercise..

Yup!

After class Mik wanted me to take some photos of her.. On our way down I see my friend Carl and his sweetie doggie (forgive me for not remembering her name).. but we had a ball in the stairway.. I should say, I had a ball! Bring the doggies on! Mwah!

Step by step we’re moving along..

I left for a quick bit again from the assembly of the pavilion to support Donguk Lee from DUSP, and Beomki Lee who were doing an exhibition at the Weisner Gallery… Virtual Generation of Sound Scape of Seoul 2050

Back to work!

Mik came for an update and to check in with us…

We know what we’re doing now and it’s like clockwork..

At this point when the main structure was together, we lifted it up to put it on the foundations…

Pavilion on foundations…

After those shots we took the lights off and I moved around with a lamp to capture some awesome shadows…

Yeah!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rhythm !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After we took all the photos we could.. (we started this at about 2pm and ended at 12:30am)… Needless to say it was a long day, but after it all we had to disassemble it… because classes would be held here when the sun comes up..

It was another great day and I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for documentation of the full scale model. We have 1 week until the final presentation (May 14th) with some editing and testing still to be thought out.. The final presentation is what you just saw (model), built!

Dance in the rain/ sun today!
