updated cover and title? also showing the current modelling matrix. the matrix shows a speciation of eleven different geometries, ranging from a cube to sphere, which are then broken down by typology(below, above, vertical, horizontal)(seating, ceiling/canopy, wall/surface, ground/topography). the typologies are then broken down for each geometry, show single, aggregation, field, topography, and surface for each typology of each geometry. the resulting grid will have a total of 200 speciations based on the conditions we are interested in exploring.


mid review updates

-ive gone through the presentation and these i the changes i think need to be made to the current presentation: there are also new pages being added, and the order listed is the order i see the current presentation being laid out: see the current or existing 02.23.2010 presentation document for references which will be made by text:

-update cover art to match project – emphasis on acoustics/music/sound/etc.-JB
-new title: suggestion: detroit soundscape: urban acupuncture?

-last paragraph: reword to match current trajectory–no longer about dismantling -CR

-add sketch: large event -JB
-add sketch: small event -JB
-short narrative on each -JB

schedule:(move to fabrication section-see below) -JB
-02.26.10 – curved wall test
-03.12.10 – milling studies
-03.13.10 – foam seating test
-03.14.10 – surface coatings
-03.16.10 – mid review

mapping: -CR
-area of interest-overall
-typologies within area of interest-network created
-bus routes/circulation thru area
-business/or sites within area under investigation-acupuncture points
-soundscape of area? if possible some acoustic analysis/diagrammatic

business diagram:-CR

siting strategy: -JB
-redo siting strategy
-fix overlapping and misplaced text
-fix line weights: visibility
-isometric: actual area of investigation

performance + acoustics:
-“enhanced” misspelled -JB
-update bottom series: typology + use -JB
-add ergonomics diagram: seating, etc. -CR

acoustic reflection properties: -JB
-line weights too thick–fix
-text not legible- resize
-reference to acoustic reflection math diagram

acoustic reflection properties: -JB
-add new acoustic reflection digram

material acoustics: -JB

scripting: -CR
-update script diagram: variability, truncation
-update pseudo-scenario of acoustic reflection on site-add actual site+geom.

formal studies: -JB
-delete all old studies from this page
-add geometry matrix-reference to catalog or is catalog
-add speciation catalog(50)-reference to matrix

interventions: -JB
-redo/update all renderings/representations-current geom + scenarios
