A Day of Fins

July 27, 2009

A morning filled with collaboration! Last Friday our friends arrived from Finland. The light and space academy is ready to start building with us. They have brought an interior lighting design to develop in our prototype. We hope that we absorb all we can from this well qualified group.

We have been assembling the aluminum angles for our store front system. The decking team (Amanda) is working on the layouts.

Assembling the facade is high on the list. And getting the water to stay off the roof, no big deal.

We always take time to brief each other on current investigations and problems. Construction involves infield corrections. Aluminum is slightly harder to fix.

We are having a blast. Rain is projected all week. James Rose is now in Finland helping teach a course.
