New Rendering!

This shows our most current design iteration and materials.  The large warm grey surface on the left is the community bulletin board.  Behind it is the children's pod.  The volume on the right in the foreground is the computer pod, and the volume behind it is the book and workspace pod.  The reception desk is the 'tail end' of the children's pod volume.

Epic Sequence - Building the Chair Mock-up

Done!!  Except for the seat.  Time for the next iteration.

And it was about here when we started questioning the amount of pieces and material required to put this design iteration together - a lot!

It was about here that we realized we can't actually build the chair this way out of MDF.  The 'horizontal' ribs on an angle require angled cuts to receive them in the vertical ribs - impossible with the GSD's shop equipment.
The back of the chair came together perfectly.

Wait...hold on...
