I returned to Ames today after three weeks of Christmas break. Studio starts tomorrow, with more urban projects than the fall. We go to New York City in about four weeks for site visit and exploration. This semester I am also taking elective course in history of urban infrastructure (Arch Dept.), and urban revitalization (CRP Dept.). I’m also looking forward to getting back in the drivers seat of a bus… I start work again tomorrow night with Run 87, late night Red and Blue routes from 10pm till end of service at about 12:30am. No more morning shifts this semester.
