The past 4 days have been crazy, from getting all the shop drawings, lumber, cutting the lumber at weird angles, painting, & assembling the parts and pieces. Coming into the shop from 9:30am to 1:30am everyday was really tiring. But we can finally see the pavilion and how cool it really is going to be. … Continue reading

Time to hit the nail on the head

Good morning everyone as Frenchie mentioned Clemson basketball did move up in the poll to 11th in the AP poll! But not to much on that subject. We did have our final initial design review with our client Enough Pie yesterday. We had a larger crowd come out to help us narrow these ideas down … Continue reading

The helping hand

Today or rather this afternoon we start off our day by helping Enough Pie with assistance by a artist from redux at the site to paint the mural. As my good friend Kevin mentioned in his post this is a great opportunity for us as a studio not just to help our client but to … Continue reading

Hardwork is paying off!

With the ongoing painting machine, we were also simultaneously working all the pieces for the roof and columns. We have made incredible progress from trying to understand how to draw and measure the roof pieces to have them finally ready and figured out. The storage unit is also all cut and primed for the color … Continue reading

The almost final design.skp

After having more than 8 iterations of the design, we seem to finally steer ourselves into a design idea which we all support and are looking forward to tackling in the upcoming Construction Drawing set. Collaboration and leadership have gone hand in hand this week. It’s not been the easiest week but the result is better … Continue reading

Weekend Warriors

A week ago today we were at the Simmons St. shop cutting, painting and pre-assembling the lumber in anticipation for a marathon build up in Greenville.  Now, what used to be a field of specifically labeled stacked and categorized lumber is an assembled structure. Starting with a site blanketed in the first snow of the … Continue reading

Please Allow Us to Pique Your Interest

It all starts somewhere. For us that somewhere started with a few strings and a little orange paint to denote the area of our site. That’s all it took for the community to take interest. By 9 AM on Monday morning the first visitor stopped by, Melvin. A man who had spent a large portion … Continue reading

Filling in the Gaps

This phase of the project reminds me of a puzzle that is just a few pieces away from being done. The end is in site, and now the studio is just undergoing a process of filling in those last few gaps. At this point, we are articulating and fine-tuning our ideas, rather than producing new … Continue reading

Welcome to the Next Step: Detailed Design

In the morning of Oct. 1st, all of the members of Studio V gave the presentation to the Design Review Committee in order to suggest and introduce our process of design and purpose. For presenting better, we made three boards, one site plan model and one pavilion model. During the presentation, the members of the committee … Continue reading

Process of the Design—Down to Earth

I was always wondering what the exact design process is. At the beginning of this semester, when we planed to make the bubble diagrams to support our ideas of the site plan. I jumped this step and directly went to Auto CAD to make it. Then when I tried to talk to other members and the professor Pastre, … Continue reading
