So the first half-semester (less, actually) of our Tech Class was spent researching our respective buildings (see earlier post) and then we set to work preparing to build, then building, large scale models of portions of our buildings. Lauren and I designed a model that is 50" tall, 26" wide, and 16" deep, at a scale of 1 inch = 1 foot. It is pretty big, and being built completely out of wood, it is also quite heavy. We spent many hours together down in the wood shop, I dare say more than any other project team. The facade ornament we laser cut onto bass wood panels, and we lucked out with finding some very appropriate-sized trim at Home Depot to signify the terra cotta molding.
