The Exhibition Design
Rough Draft of Exhibition Design
What seems to be a endless week. Things have finally come together for the exhibition. Still progressing on the draw up. We are experiencing a minor hold back. Our Urban Designer Erin Brockenshire is currently working on visuals of our alleyway. Our rough draft design (picture above) will be incorporating our group elements along with Erin Brockenshire to make the final master piece. Also, a new addition was brought into this team. Maan Allawi who is a carpenter will be volunteering his time to help us construct our design. The reason why we have him is due to the fact that our design will be largely made out of bricks. As a group, we are responsible for others, as well as, our own safety that these bricks would be assembled correctly so that no one gets harm. With this, time would be an issue to our deadline. Hopefully we can speed up the process once we have our design completed.
What is New With the Greenhouse Team?
In the past week, our team has prepared themselves for the upcoming presentation. We have continued to work on multiple aspects of researching such as, different greenhouse sketches influenced by bio architectural designs, greenhouse functions of energy efficiency technology, and funding research. Secondly, our team was able to meet with Jennifer Willet and Rod Strickland to discuss what we have accomplished so far. They were able to provide feedback about certain aspects of our work. Jennifer suggested that we should look at certain natural functions of objects or animals that we had previously chosen to implement into our greenhouse designs and include them into our final structure. For example, examine how the object is able to catch the sun, use energy, catch moisture, and catch heat and include it in our final design. She was able to give us certain designs that she is most interested in such as, spinal infrastructure, geodesic dome, and snaky shell. Finally, as a group, we have decided that our next step is to create new designs that are able to function in a more natural manner, make models of them, and be able to present these new designs to Jennifer and Rod in a two week period.
