    Just got back from Chicago for WIRED's NextFest.

    Monday, drove up to Chicago in a Uhaul with 14,500+ Components that would become the Suitcase Pavilion 2.0. Tuesday morning, we started constructing the pavilion which serves as the gateway for the Festival, exhibiting technology of the future. 12 VT + C U P Architecture students (3rd, 4th, and 5th years) and faculty had Tuesday through Thursday at noon to complete the pavilion, to be ready for opening night. NextFest is held in Millennium Park, and is now open to the public until October 12.
