    And then there was one.

    Over the past month, we have been coming up with bridge designs for phase 2 of the Masonic Amphitheater project.

    Everyone started out by making their own bridge. As designs progressed, people teamed up to collaborate. Seventeen groups became eleven, eleven became six, six became three. And on Monday, three became one.

    Before spring break, we met with the "so called jury" (Keith and Marie's Thesis students), who helped us decide on some criteria that our bridge designs should have. The Friday before spring break, the three groups presented their bridge ideas and strengths were pulled from each- the railing from one, the path from another, and the "hub" from a third. This past monday, we spent the day brainstorming and combining ideas, ultimately coming up with one idea for our bridge.

    Now it's time to begin drawing!
