Finally saw the EOM wrapper up close from the Bike Path. Super weird, excessive and probably not needed for these times of extreme inequality and social duress. But made a tiny bit of visual sense with all the concrete on the creek.

Interesting building. To be fair though, there has always been extreme inequality and social duress throughout the past 300 years.

True Chad, but is this the Versailles Palace, maybe it is for some...

I guess what I wanted to say is that its kinda fits in the physical context, but not the social one.

It’s goofy-looking, IMO.

Could be a post apocalyptic movie location. Looks nuked.

Could be the black and white combined with the exposure of the photo . . .

Cool photo though.  I like the composition!

Love the photos, love the building, both unsettle me in a good way.

The swoopy things look terrible. It’s like some weird wish dot com off brand of the beijing bird’s nest.

Isn’t this an office building too? Imagine trying to lease this thing out when there is zero consistency floor to floor.

I also hear that most of buildings in the Hayden tract have a ton of issues.

Great images, SOD. The black and white choice is perfect.

And as strange as this thing is, the more conventional, huge mixed-use thing across the street to the north
is not much better.

Freaking out in a good way - just signed a lease for my first office space after going out on my own in May last year. Not bad for only a year!

Did UL get rid of their printed Fire Resistance directories and I just not know about it? I've been using the online version, I'm not a fan, and previously it was support staff that was responsible for ordering our code and reference materials. How and where do you get yours?

I have an older refence book. I find the assembly I want in the book and then I look it up on the website for the updated information and current CAN/ULC.

B3ta, yes. As far as I know, the printed doc went bye bye several years ago when they revamped their website. It's a pain to learn the search functions but it has everything there and it is updated constantly.  You can also do reverse searches by using a specific product to find applicable assemblies.

Ahip, many of the assemblies in the old printed ULC docs have changed numbers or don't exist anymore.  We've also ran into issues where one assembly in the book was good, but the testing expired so they pulled the material from their website.  Office policy now is to only use assembly sheets directly from ULC website but that's too much work for some which only adds work for me when I need to dig out my cape and save the day.

The printed version is so much better than the website.

I spent yesterday designing a screen porch addition to my house in Sketch Up. I have at least 25 things that I should have prioritized over dicking around in SU for 6 hours, but I just couldn't help myself.

Is this COVID brain? Perimenopause? ADHD? Depression? I can't seem to do the things I really *should* be doing, but I can easily lose myself in what I *want* to be doing.

Anyway, thank goodness for the rain this morning. These heat domes suck and definitely contribute to my mood.

I think I have at least 278 versions of my unfinished house renovations, in sketch

Oops. ...in sketchup format from over the years. Today I'm stripping paint and while it's somewhat sorta satisfying, it's really slow work that will never actually be appreciated. Ugh.
