So turns out all these students had their projects wayyyyy overleveraged on sleep. As projects have all run into the grim reality of studio, increasing numbers of students are finding they have to default on their sleep loans. Designers were overconfident and frivolities like explorations in window details and such minutia have been discovered when quality or even production of basic plans and elevations have gone largely ignored. Dark architectural times indeed.
My project is teetering on the brink but I'm getting a small bailout courtesy of Peet's Coffee. Some experts say this will not be enough. It'll have to do. For now.
