Refining While Making

It has been a very busy weekend at 1 Simons Street.  Studio V and ITC students have been sharing the CAC.C fabrication headquarters to prepare for reviews Monday and Tuesday respectively.  The Studio V mock-up made great strides over the weekend.  Friday we tested our idea of twisting steel angle for the shading part of [...]
