    miles to go

    Midreview in process; I'm sitting at the back with wireless. Bret Terpeluk from Renzo's office is describing a cast multiple threaded rod fixture that supports compound-curved glazing above the central piazza of the new Academy of Science (of which Bret's the Project Architect). We're presenting full-scale mock-ups of curtain wall details from this project. Oh yeah, and we're leaving for LA tomorrow morning to tour Morphosis projects et al for the next phase of the studio. Miles to go before I sleep”¦

    Funny how sleep deprivation alters the senses. You start hearing things. You stare listlessly at nothing. Your shoes begin to ask you questions (and you answer). Perhaps it's also the caffeine, and the maddeningly beautiful day outside that you missed after several days of rain. Somehow, my model came out pretty well, despite discovering early this morning that I made one of the four glazing units backwards”¦.

    Photos are from this crit, by the way”¦
