As students began filtering back onto the U of M campus from their spring breaks, some great weather was here to meet them. The unusually warm weather has led to a lot of the table and chairs scattered around different campus plaza's to be brought out (and quickly filled by the butts of students. A great spot just outside of Rapson Hall is Lily Plaza (located over the Church St. Garage). All of the chairs and table are out and many students have given up their spots within the libraries to move out into the sunshine to study. (For those of you reading this from a warm climate, this goes to show Minnesota isn't all snow and ice!)
The professors have taken notice off the warm weather as well and have been hosting a number of classes out on the open lawns. It seems they want to be outside just as much as we do! This is another way to show how flexible the professors here at the U of M (and especially within the College of Design)!
This great weather has also lead to an increased amount of planned site visits for my studio class. Tomorrow we will be heading out to Juxtapostion Arts in North Minneapolis to take some important site notes as we build our site model (the College of Design Workshop will be sure to come in handy once again) and begin proposals for development strategies.
I hope you all are enjoying the weather..! (and maybe even reading this blog while sitting outside!)
