All the big parts in place

Still some minor modifications to be made, but all the big parts were installed today with the help of Peggy, Alex, and Katie. The light and sound quality of the megaphones is constantly changing based on the variations of the site.

Most people walking along the trail don't know what to make of it, but they all agree "It's interesting" or "different".

Progress Continues

Work continued today. While it was nice to see it in the sun, there was still not enough shade created to stay cool. Four more "chunks" to install,maybe done on Tuesday. Once the final parts are in place the temporary bracing can be removed.

Big Assembly Day

Ngoc Thy, Alex, and I had a few extra hands on site today to help hold and rivet. Thanks to Dwight, Jessica, Craig, and Jen for giving up their Sunday. All the parts are on site now with five "chunks" left to install. We hope to have the remaining pieces installed this week.

Assembly on site

This week we began setting the base of the pavilion. The first stage is a bit time consuming as the first row is anchored to the ground and filled with gravel. The next stage will be the assembly and installation of the ‘oculus’ at the northern edge.

Shadow Pavilion cleared for construction

On Friday we received word that the Shadow Pavilion has been cleared by the University Review Committee for construction. Most of the parts are assembled and are ready to be moved to the botanical Gardens.

The site is being prepped this week and the installation will begin, weather permitting.

Ayaka Ceiling Complete

Ayaka Sushi is open. Here are a couple of images of the completed ceiling in the space. Once the panels were assembled in the shop Marshall and Alex spent two days installing the six suspended panels.

Because the panels fold over and are painted with two different colors, from one direction it is more white from the other more orange is exposed.
