i didnt realize how big my site model was going to be until i actually built it. and ive actually never built a base for a site model myself bc its always been a class thing, and usually one of the guys takes that duty.
but i decided to not build the traditional base.
my boyfriend is in architecture too-- in syracuse, and when i told him my next step was to build the base i saw an excited gleam in his eyes. "dooood, put it on casters. itll be badass." and so he explained to me how i should go about it... and the next thing i know im at home depot buying 4x8 sheets of mdf.
since i knew the assembly of it would require a lot of room, i decided to go back to the chicago burbs to put it together on my lawn. my sister helped..
then my sister, her boyfriend and i tried loading it in the car...
[look at the first set of pictures from complete assemblage to basic pieces. because that is what we had to do next]
but so i just brought it back to school and put it together in studio. isnt it beautiful? mainly because its on casters. i still have to finish all my buildings.
so after taking this picture, i started randomly snapping shots of things on or around my studio desk. everything reminded me of something.. or someone. see for yourself:
gum and gaudi
used kleenex and gehry
scratches on desk and libeskind
and while we're on the subject, dont u think....
libeskind and al franken (stuart smalley) RIght?!
