Yesterday, a professor of architecture at Lawrence Tech, who is also a graduate of Cranbrook Art Academy took me on a walking tour of Cranbrook. I met the artist in residence who is in charge of the architecture project. I saw the students' in-progress thesis projects, which were really inspiring. I am especially excited about some of the folded and pop-up three-dimensional steel projects, as well as one made from routed wooden modules, and one curved like an upside-down ship's prow that will be clad in cedar. I am looking forward to seeing the finished product in a few weeks.

The girl's school, Kingswood, is more of a Japanese-inspired Art Deco.
