Catching up…

April 8, 2010

We hope that the readers will forgive this small time delay…  Is has been a rather challenging task for our team leadership to take on the final phases of design drawing, structural engineering calculation, materials testing, installation crew organization and training, Cooper-Hewitt museum communications, project budget management, final fabrication, materials preparation and delivery, tools assembly, and construction management.  It has been A LOT of work, but nevertheless an extraordinary experience for design students to negotiate these diverse terrains from design through construction – with the accountability required for construction in a historic museum such as the Cooper-Hewitt.

With this disclaimer, in the following posts, I’d like to catch you up on the events of the last week.  Eight months of preparation – material and constructional prototype testing, design and engineering iterations, specifications and construction sequence writing, communication with manufacturers, exhibition coordinators, production managers, engineers of record – have made this construction possible.
