Well, tomorrow we leave for our trip north! It's going to be a great time and I'm pretty excited about it, but, since we're going to be moving around so much, I won't have my computer and will be pretty much unreachable. It's alright though, I'll be back next Friday night!
Anyway, a lot has happened since my last post, so I've got a good amount to talk about to hold you over for the next week. Yesterday we had our first jury in Rome and it actually went pretty well for everybody. Not surprisingly everybody had great projects, and maybe even less surprisingly, the jurors still did have some critiques, mainly for the synthesis part in whcih we "redesigned" our assigned piazza. Oh well, they were good comments and they really just highlighted he difference in thinking between Americans and Europeans when we talk about urban spaces. It was good though, because that type of dynamic thinking can only help us. They also seemed to be very impressed with everybody's drawings and layout, which honestly were all great. I really enjoyed this project and I'm very happy about the way it turned out, hopefully I'll have some pictures to share once we document the project. We haven't gotten our next project yet which is kind of nice, it's nice to take a break and enjoy our trip.
Yes, that last one is a kid wrestling a duck. Anyway, that's it for now, I'll be back in a week with a big from the week north!
