    the first project for the second semester invites students to bring together the four generators, structure, meaning, climate and activities, in the design of a single building under one of three possible themes - meditation, rest or social activity.

    The location of the project is one of three sites along the basin of a man-made waterfall that was constructed as part of a hydro-electric plant (now de-commissioned) frequented by visitors each weekend.

    Although an academic exercise for recording surroundings we made a day of it, barbecuing chicken on rather industrial grills, consuming copious amounts of alcohol and most importantly just soaking in the qualities the site afforded us.
