"Knocked my socks off..."
Actually I liked that crap...(what I could imagine Stanley thinking)
That's what you want to hear from Stanley after your presentation...
Our group was awesome - we even got Ben Nicholson to start talking about being the Oracle at Delphi...
Stanley even admitted that he came to the critique that night sure that we were going to fail miserably, but we took him by surprise. Surprised by design I suppose.
Here we come Dual Design!
The other two groups (community schools and stroke survivors) had a little tougher time. I think our group was funny enough and distracting enough (we were hoping in and out of boxes) that not too many questions were raised.
The community schools group went last and got ripped by Stanley...I think it's the curse of going third. That's where our group was last critique. They are proposing a fence project for community schools in Chicago, Stanley had mentioned something earlier in the semester; why not work with a fence? Now that they are it ain't going so well...
On Monday I went to the final critique for the Advanced Interior Architecture studio at the School of the Art Institute (where I graduated from)
The program was to design A musuem for Chicago Blues....The entire advanced studio is made up of foreign students...I was really impressed by some of what I saw. It's one thing for me to sit here in the US in studio and design something proposed for a foreign locale...Not only were these students not from Chicago, but who was their critique panal? Chicago Blues magicians...! Ha - talk about being under fire.
Anyways, it's off to Texas tomorrow. Maybe I'll get to go to Boquillas?
