Thank you for your hospitality Virginia Tech.

After two fast-paced weeks the Integrated Design Studio came to a close this Monday with the presentation of the 4 final projects below.  We had a great time being Hokies for two weeks, and probably learned as much from the students as they did from us (hopefully they learned a little). 

 The premise of the project was to explore the possibilities and power of interdisciplinary collaboration… challenge the students think differently about design. All four teams should be proud of what they achieved. The quality of the work was high and there were many intangible moments throughout that equally validated the process. 

Jonathon, Brad and I left invigorated, and ready to try it again next year.

Brad here, posting remotely from Kansas City. I received preview photos yesterday from Jonathon and Jon and was genuinely impressed. Two weeks, new design thinking, diverse group, and you met the challenge. We hit the ground running day one and were sprinting all the way to the finish. Congrats! Keep your eyes peeled for complete postings of the final schemes and thoughts in the coming days.

Saturday night at the studio.

Well armed with a seemingly endless supply of Red Bull (I’ve heard tales of a Red Bull dealer in one of the studios) everyone is steadily generating renderings and laser cutting model parts. With the finish line in sight, concepts coming together and a full moon outside the freakout level is low… but it’s early.
