Title: Pyrenees
By: Dav

Dear Mr. Lennartson,

Your discussion on the Geography of Sustainablilty was interesting and thought provoking. What really stood out to me during your presentation was when you mentioned the code orange days that have been present. I found this to be very shocking. I would like to hope that people would become more aware if they were to hear this statistic. Thank you.

The drawings presented on the two pages represent the key images that I felt represented the different areas of research that as a class we conducted. The images are in the order of context, precedent, community, client, container, codes, and communication starting in the top left corner and progressing in a clock wise manner.

Ideal Bus Shelter

This is the ideal bus stop that the seven group came up with. We wanted to incorporate the main tree into the design. To the left of the tree is a seating area and to the right is a standing area. The tree provides a majority of the shade. The main form penetrates out of the ground and continuously works around to create the seating area.

Communication Charette

This idea falls under the place category as a means of gorilla advertising. The other five components to this advertising strategy can be found on the following blogs: Anna Will, Jenny Deal, and Nacarra Lassane

Last Day

Imagine as your walking or driving through campus and you look upon the Jackson Library and you see an image you have never seen before upon that building. The next day as you are passing through you notice another image and maybe this time you actually known the person in the image. Each day after that a new image appears upon the building. Maybe eventually your picture shows up on the building. Each day people would continue to pass through campus and see what has changed on the building or if their picture is up. The last day writing appears promoting our second year studio. Through this idea the community sees that the IARC second year studio is designing the better the community.
