With less than two weeks until the Obayashi company arrives on campus with crane to complete the final pavilion assembly, first year students have been focused and busy producing the various parts and pieces of the pavilion. The assembly of the tension cables finished last week, and attention has been shifted to laser-cutting the plywood pieces for the interior furniture elements, and hydro-inflating the stainless steel compressive components as they arrive from the fabricator in batches of 34, every two days.
