The following excerpt was written as a combination of Seal and Clerical Scripts, because it was written between the two phases. Seal Script has delicate, circular strokes, while Clerical has dramatic strokes with flare.



A Place to Sit: Activating an Interstitial Space UF School of Architecture, Gainesville, FL 10-hour Charrette Group Charrette with Emily Marvel and Jieun Jeong For this Charrette Design Students were asked to supplement the School of Architecture with costeffective solutions for one of the following issues: 1. lack of public/shared seating 2. dilapidated studio desks 3. lack of signage to direct incoming students and visitors Our group decided to activate a dead space between classrooms on the fourth floor of the architecture building. This interstitial space has a nice view of campus. In fact, many students sit on the floor of this space for studio breaks.


Below sections created by Emily Marvel

Above arrangment of cubes is for leisure or dining, while below arrangement is for final critique with cubes arranged against the presentation boards to display models.

We created a space that had two primary functions: 1. leisure/relaxation/dining space 2. lecture space Boards were mounted onto one of the walls for the lecture space and 4’ x 1’ rolling presentation boxes were placed perpendicular to the presentation wall to create a space for critiquing. A latticed wall made of resinite tubing registers with the presentation boxes to create another space for leisure. Cubes made of resinite tubing were also utilized for seating, tables, and/or display depending on the arrangement of the user. All drawings and renderings were created by Lynette Salas, except where noted.
