    Now That’s What I Call A Table of Contents 2017!
    Ok – now she’s cookin’!

    I’d work on 5 & 9 for now (to figure out the building). and then flesh out some of the other ones later in the week.

  2. Natasha Sandmeier says:

    was looking at your 4th year proj today – and the reason it works is because you really defined an agenda (save stuff) and then built all the things necessary to do that (wonderwall, barges).

    even if your project was an assembly of hundreds of interiors, at the very least, we should understand something about those interiors. Also if we all went inside, what would we take with us, if anything? what would survive?

    What IS the interior?

    • Natasha Sandmeier says:

      also, look at the Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles – it’s been in LOADS of movies – is super impossible to orient oneself within, has a gym and running track looping around the interior atrium.

      start referencing bizarre interiors. If the bonaventure is convoluted, then the Marquis Marriott in Atlanta is simply VAST and looks like the inside of an Alien (from the Aliens movies…)

      • Emma Fraser says:

        Yes it was good last year that I identified the thesis and worked the project toward it, need to get that going now.

        Yes thank you I will defo look at those and see how the convoluted interior paths can inform the design.
