Fall is in the air! Today we had our urbanism class in the courtyards of College of Charleston. Being able to sit in the crisp air and listen to the hustle and bustle of college students was a great break from architecture. Now that the weather is a little more tolerable, sitting around a fire bending wood should be more enjoyable.
Last class, writer Susan Cohen from the Charleston City Paper interviewed the studio.
She first asked our professor, David Pastre, questions trying to fully understand the direction of the project. She noticed it took a major turn in direction, comparative to what she last saw. She also asked him why it took such a drastic change and if we will be able to pull it off.
Susan also asked the student’s some questions. It was a good experience to be able to voice our opinion about the project and how Don ZanFagna is such an inspiration. Having a writer from the city paper ask us questions also put this project in perspective. It is actually happening! We are going to put a dome over the Marion Square fountain and people are going to be able to walk on it. However, the most exciting part is that this has never been done before and it is benefiting a well deserved artist.
So get ready for a new addition to Marion Square and don’t forget to read about it in the newspaper.
