Programming was so much fun this past week!  Maybe you all weren’t starry-eyed with everything going on, but as of Tuesday, we kinda have a building guys!  DISCLAIMER: so, this building is going to change a lot over the next couple of weeks, and in the end, it won’t look anything like what we started yesterday (so don’t fall in love with it)…but it’s always hardest to actually START something…as one of my peers always said in studio “I know what I have to do, I just have to do it” and then went and played guitar hero for three hours in procrastination.  The stressful part is over, and now we have something to work with.


It’s a good thing everyone’s bubble diagrams looked awesome because, had they not it would be rough to start putting together a building.  This was a great exercise to do though because it makes you realize a lot about what you want to accomplish and what you actually can accomplish.  It forces us to be realistic about how much area we have allotted per spacial type, what spaces should be approximate to each other, and potentially how you move throughout the building, both horizontally and vertically.  It was nice to having 5 diagrams completed: a little diversity allowed us to grab some of the best ideas from each and use them to start compiling a more thought-out theater.  We’ll finish this exercise at the start of next week’s meeting.

The bright colors differentiate program, don't worry we don't be creating a rainbow - painted building.
