Collaboration


The last couple of days have been a bit of a Yoyo, but I think we are finally on the right track. Here, let me explain.

Last week, on Thursday, September 30th, we presented the class with type of signs and where to place the sign on the lot. Also we showed two new layout suggestions. (below)

(not the real colours ^ but just the design aspect. Green = photos, Pink = Text)

We were then given an Idea that we could build a greenhouse cold box, and use one of the panels for the sign. This way, it is both useful, informative, and working art.

So, on Tuesday, October 5th, we gathered with the Eco House team and collaborated on a design.


The box would 2 feet tall, 6 feet long and 3 feet wide.

There would be two long boxes, and then a artistically design in the middle, this way people would be intrigued and more willing to walk along the lot. It was exciting seeing the idea start to come to life.

We used painters tape, and drew the shape on the floor and wall, so we could have a visual aid. It was easier this way, to understand what it could look like, and how we could build it.

It would be made from mostly plexiglass or just glass, with a wooden frame. It would slope down from the top, and have three panels where the middle panel would have the information. Above was trying to figure out how high the base should be.

So, with the designs sketched out, and the tape laying out on the ground, the next step was to present this to Noel.

However, we were hit with reality. Costs, how its going to be built, who’s going to build it, etc.

Now we’re back at where we were. We’re gathering our research, and writing out what will be on the sign.

We will talk about the Past, the Present and the Future of the lot, using pictures, illustrations and possibly a story format to explain the story of the Wildflower Garden.

By Thursday the writing will be done, so we can edit it and discuss what needs to be added or changed.

Some good news, on the other hand, is a few of our members also went out and measured the lot, and drew an amazing map with the dimensions. With this map, not only can our team decide where the sign can be located, but for other groups as well when they can’t be at the lot. It’s going to be a very useful aid for the future.
