Off to a Good Start

We brought in some examples of interesting layouts we thought we'd like to use in our catalogue

Our group has the task of creating the Wind Turbine Catalogue, a 30+ page publication documenting  the Wind Turbine project.

This catalogue is for anyone interested in learning more about this public artwork, and as such it will include informative text as well as photos and diagrams.  This assignment was especially daunting during the first few group meetings as we worked to come up with a way to break down the enormous scope of the catalogue into several workable categories that we want to cover, ranging from design and technology to art and poetry.

Once we knew what we wanted to write and ask questions about, last class we divided ourselves into two groups: One is the design team, currently creating four sample layouts using iPhoto and InDesign, from which we will come up with a template for the catalogue.

The other group is made up of the information -gathereres, who are collecting information from various sources that will be used in our writing. The sources we are currently (or in the near future)  in contact with include the Wind Turbine Engineering team (diagrams, materials being used) , the poets contributing their work (quotes for the “poetry” section), and Lorenzen, who donated the turbine ( a statement for the catalogue).

Wind Turbine: Final Steps.

The Wind turbine group put a lot of effort in accomplishing some tasks. This week we headed out to scrap metals yards. On Monday two of us visited to K Scrap Resources which is a huge scrap metal yard in west side of Windsor, we met with Foreman and showed our design, he was very happy and gave us positive response and said he will discuss in the meeting and get back to us in coming week.
On Tuesday we visited another scrap yard A & P Metals, that is a small scrap yard in west side of Windsor as well. We had meeting with the owner of that scrap yard and we showed him our design and blue print to him, at first he was reluctant to give us for free, and he was charging 30cents per pound for steel tubing, but then we described him the project of Green Corridor and benefits for the community which convinced him and later he allowed us to take whatever we want for free. We are appreciating his efforts that he is donating the materials to us for the stand. Now we need to ship it to the Label building for the summer class.
On Tuesday again we had a very big day for our project. We had a meeting with Lorenzen Engineering and at this we had James D. Lorenzen is a owner of owner of Lorenzen Engineering with us which proved to be a successful meeting. We conclude that we are still working on a long term partnership with the Lorenzen Engineering and we really appreciate that he gave us valuable opportunity to successfully put this project and give such a donation.
We as a Wind turbine group are moving forward to complete our tasks. Again special thanks to Mr. James D. Lorenzen and A & P metals.

WIND TURBINES: A solution to a greener environment!

Green Corridor is an innovative idea for a greener Windsor and thus a greener environment. It is a unique project of its own kind, introduced by a group of artists in the University of Windsor in collaboration with its students. It is an environmental friendly idea from the founders of green corridor, to help remind people and businesses that have forgotten their social responsibility towards the environment.

The winter 2010 green corridor class has brought back the wind turbine project which has been halted for various reasons. As a group we are planning to discover and solve those reasons. Our main goal is to carry on and contribute to the legacy of the wind turbine project. The team is planning to professionally approach different local manufacturers and other officials in order to help us achieve our project goals through funding and sponsorships.

Our group members consist of five members from different educational backgrounds, namely Belal Akkawi(Accounting),Faheem Muhammad(Finance), Ibrahim Khalifa(General Science), Junaid Iftikhar(Economics) & Sachin Malhotra(Accounting).
