been a while

Not sure where we all are with this thing but I found these two things recently online. The first hints at one approach to the library. A model to consider to base MTA on (alluded to by Mr Keller with the Tower of Babylon drawings)

The second is a critique of the museum itself. See it here.

Both of these things make me question the concept of the Museum as we know it for the future.

Ok so I didn't get a chance to scan my sketches to show you all but it was a late night and I was very tired. :( No worries though I'll get'er done before Friday. It's amazing what little time a working adult has on their hands. Be prepared though for an a-MAZE-ing idea! Get it? Teehee!
