Class 08: Fish House walkthrough + Course Catalog/Missions discussion

From Projects: The Cooper Union
Jump to: navigation, search

For our eighth class on October 31, 2016 we met at 2pm in 414 Fdn. We walked over together to the Fish House for a walkthrough facilitated by Buildings & Grounds staff. The Fish House typically serves as the residence of the President, but was empty during our visit because Cooper was in between presidents.

Hey Projects class,

See you on Monday at 2pm in 414. At 2:15, we'll head over together to the Fish House for a tour from Buildings & Grounds staff. This probably isn't going to take the whole class time, so after the walkthrough we can continue our discussions of projects and readings, including the Course Catalog[1].

It looks like Cooper's Form 990 for 2014[2] (disclosing lots of financial info) was recently published online. Worth a look and discussion, if you have a chance to peruse it.

I've been working on some updates to the Wiki[3], starting to form structured collections of Documents[4] we've reviewed, Meetings[5], and Class Email[6] announcements. If you've used Wikipedia, it should be straightforward enough to navigate this, and you're welcome to contribute however you find useful either directly or through talking with me. I'm happy to talk more about how to use this with anyone who's interested. My hope is to build a bit of a resource as we go, even if it's just for our reflections together.

If you've got pictures from our trips together so far (quarry, archives, walkthroughs, etc.), we'd love to start collating what everyone is taking note of, visually. You can drop batches of files onto this Dropbox URL, and they'll be attributed with your name. Once we've have a chance to sort things out I'll share the folder with everyone. We'll also include a link for photos from last week in emails going forward.

Finally, see attached for a bunch of readings from David Gersten!
