    Ryan HERNANDEZ: How societies build for death varies and offers deep and solemn investigations into narrative, identity and form. We will earnestly deal with these topics with light and whimsical hearts.

    Each figure in the continuous field is 20 ft. tall with a volume of 115 cu.ft. and constructed of poured in place concrete requiring 50 gal. of water, 300 lbs of cement, 800 lbs of fine aggregate (Human ash and sand). One human corpse produces 5 lbs of ash and one figure requires 60 humans. An average of 150,000 deaths in New Orleans (site: New Orleans, Old Algiers) can create 208 figures a month.

    Jesus CORRAL: The goal of the project was to design a colony of single person cabins, ranging from 600-800 square feet. The project stood within a typical forest, that could possibly be found anywhere in the Midwest, United States.

    Formally, I studied attributes that would not normally be taken seriously as architecture. Produced were balloon like forms, which tied around each other, along with box extrusions protruding from the shapes.

    Austin SAMSON & Danny KARAS:
    Painting: The project revolves around the idea of using the Chiaroscuro effect as a way to create and manipulate three-dimensional space within a two dimensional drawing or image. This is done by using conventional drawing techniques, such as hatching, in new ways to represent shade and shadow. The layering of these hatching techniques may either enhance shadow, produce fake shadow (where shade is literally painted on) or flatten areas of the image in order to produce moments of ambiguity within each drawing.

    Łukasz WAWRZEŃCZYK, Frisly COLOP MORALES, Jason EASTER, & Adrian YAU: The cultural importance of the public library lies within the inherent power of the knowledge which it holds. This knowledge can be a significant life-altering force for the patrons of the library and furthermore within the larger community which it serves. The methods by which this information is contained and transmitted are continually evolving, yet the correlation between access to such information and issues such as upward social mobility and increased life opportunity are evident.
