Our day started off with a cold, breezy wind at Olympic Village. We met with two landscape architects to learn about the history and designing process for the Olympic Village. We found out that Olympic Village used to be the area where Olympic athletes lived in. Now, it is a open space and residential area for locals. During the tour, I observed the surrounding. I noticed how there were many children playing with the mini water slide and climbing on the structures at the park in Olympic Village. This reminded me of Yerba Buena in San Francisco because Yerba Buena have a park where many kids do the same activities as the kids in Vancouver. Thus, I felt that the parks in Olympic Village as San Francisco.
After the tour ended, we went to MakerLabs to make a box with figurines that was relevant to pedestrian safety. We wanted to create something that can help people understand our presentations relating to the by using visuals. One thing that I learned from MakerLabs was that a laser cutter doesn’t take a short period of time to cut a piece of wood. If I revisit MakerLabs in the future, I would want to make a 3D sculpture of a mustache because mustaches are gorgeous.
