The future of Siena mapping:
I will be using the mapping work that our group did this summer in Siena and generate more work and a new proposal for the urban farm system. My goal is to create a complete project worthy of being published in Map[time], a student magazine that Erick has received permission to begin at NJIT.
Thank you for everyone that was involved with this summer program. To all of the professors and critics, thank you for your time, input, and “sacrifice” of coming out to guide us this summer. Special thanks to all of the students for sharing moments that we will never forget.
I shall update the blog after today, I’m currently at my max for uploads. I’m still missing sketches and photos from Venice and the Biennale, photos from Florence, sketches and photos from Siena, photos and sketches from Milan, and other random sketches along the way. Also missing is some pictures from Spain.
I Hope to see you all soon! Ciao!

The time has finally come. My last studio final in my undergraduate career!!!! Our set up consisted of two site models, study models, sketches, perspectives, a sectional condition flip book, and three laptops to display the paths we took during our mapping adventure.
Videos of our path
These three videos were made to show everyone the path that we’ve taken, highlighting where we came across our nodes.
We found all of our nodes through the documentation, and most of the nodes were obtained through materiality change, sectional change or change in motion. We built the our first model representing the sectional change that we experienced, keeping the height to a scale of 1/16”=1’ but distorted the horizontal scale to fit along the vertical pieces that connected the nodes. We also made sure we kept north constant with all the nodes, so someone can try and understand the complexity of the model a little easier. The different things we represented on the model were street (newspaper), landscape (cardboard), cobblestone (graph paper), man-made structures (black cardboard), sidewalk (masking tape) and the valleys (white T-shirt).
