yikes - i'm really behind on my posts so i'll try and run you guys up to date on what has been going on here.
our second project of the semester was a group building project. RISD is taking part in the Solar Decathalon in Washington DC in October...our second project was to build a shade pavilion for the house. We were given two quality materials: furring strips and tyvek. Working in groups of 15 students and each first year studio competed with one another. Here are some images:

last image brings me to our last project of the semester - designing a boathouse. We on a rowing excursion in the Seekoonk River and are now getting ready for our final crit on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, I've been spending copious amounts of time with the 3D scanner at Brown for my final Rapid Prototyping project. RISD's Digital Media department just got a ZCorp machine and makes mighty fine prints. Will post more images after finals.
