Four years of architecture school in Imperial Units is not easily unlearned. The metric system is such a pain in my ass.
I don't care if it is superior, base ten, whatever- I can't quickly reference it in my head.
Rode my bike to Basel this weekend. 95km (In miles??? 60ish.) It was so great though- we did probably 90% of the trip on dedicated bike/walking paths completely separate from the vehicular road. The regional connectivity of the network is absolutely unbelievable.
Studio tomorrow and Wednesday. Another review next week. Working on structure, thoughts about materials, detailing site plan/ first real iteration of floor plan. And a nice section. And a rendering. Turns out I have more to do than I thought.
Saw a lecture from Mark Lee from Johnston Marklee & Associates today in my Urban Mutations class today. More about the class later.
Posted new photos yesterday (fourth album)
