Renzo Piano

So our move to Sheffield Hallams city campus from our amazing PSalter Lane campus has been somewhat eventful. Studios resemble that of prison, all we need is bunks.. although there probably wouldnt be any room for bunks. The great gallery space which is now studio space for a few studio groups closes really early till they get their insurance sorted. Which is a pain in my ass. They haven’t set up half of our equpiment for photography, sculpture and some video areas (although video is pretty sorted incomparison). I was ready 2 jump right in, but we dont have chairs for our crazy wheely desks.

And then I see stuff like this:

10 years and $500 million in the making, the Renzo Piano designed California Academy of Sciences will house an aquarium, planetarium, natural history museum and classrooms.

Functional well thought design that is also sustainable.

The Americans know how 2 make an university. They know how to do it!
