Lets get started...but beware because there is a



So here we are once again, except this time, it's the beginning of the end. Friday we received news from our professors of project Jenga 7.0, and once again we MERGE. The four teams of six are now two teams of twelve, and [E]merge is teaming up with Trepide. Today we met for almost two hours and discussed the similarities and differences in our two structures and contemplated the possibilities including the pros and cons of bringing them together. Needless to say, this ended up taking a lot longer than we thought it would, and we found that this wasn't something we could just throw together. Tomorrow we have a 3-hour design charette broken into three parts, which we now understand is going to be a crucial part of our design process as a newly 12-person team. We then picked two people who would co-lead our team of twelve, one person from each team of six. Austin and Dajana got assigned this task due to their great leadership skills, encouragement, drive, and excitement they bring to the team. Lastly,and most importantly, we decided on a team name...

PORTMANTEAU!



Although we haven't decided on what exactly we have in common, except for the use of materials, here are the overall concepts for each team...
[E]merge: the use of horizontals and verticals and how they join. Emphasis on harmony and rhythm.
Trepide: Dematerialization. Architecture of an illusion. Light used to create loss of structure through transparent materials.

...after the charette tomorrow, there will be more to come!
