Fundamentals

So I haven't slept much lately, and it's all due to the excessive amount of homework I've been receiving. The assignment taking up most of my time so far, requiring multiple all-night homework sessions at Eichberg Hall, is my Arch. Fundamentals model. We started at the beginning of the quarter playing around with blocks, planes, posts, etc. Found an arrangement we liked, then multiplied in a formal arrangement (linear, stepped, zig-zagged), now we are elaborating on that arrangement moving horizontally and vertically. After repeated all-night sessions, followed by class with the professor acting as a tornado, literally ripping it to shreds, and repeating, we've begun to see a function emerging from the pile of sticks and foam core board. We are only at midterms, so I've got a long way to go on this project. I'm certain I will have to continue to change and refine it until its a beautiful structure. Guess the function of my building, and you'll get 10 cool points.

You'll have to excuse me for not having a clue about what I'm looking at. It looks cool though. I'll guess (and probably get wrong) that it could be a ski lodge or an arena/amphitheater of some kind. If I'm way off mark I apologise. I wish you the best with the rest of your project. :)
