This post is as advertised. "Site visit" on Saturday, September 3, 2011 to our site from last semester's studio project--Flushing Meadows.
[I was crouched in the bushes like a pervert to take this photo. Tennis fans, you know that I know that you know who this is.]
Now I'm back at my desk in Cambridge, and I've got a lot of catching up to do over the next few days. I just hope that my critics don't see this. I'm in Weiss/Manfredi's studio, by the way! It's gonna be, uh, almost as fun as tennis.
Oh, and Dean Mostafavi announced that there will likely be a study abroad program in Rotterdam with Rem Koolhaas in coming semesters, and that the Herzog and de Meuron thesis students may spend the semester in Basel. If this is the result of increasing space constraints in Gund Hall, then I'm all for it!
Thanks for looking!
