Sleeping Quarters

Here are a few examples of sleeping spaces that you may not have thought about, or maybe you have.

Above are a few bulb-shaped tents that hang down from the trees.

Micro compact home. The ideal sleeping location of my choice, small, sustainable, and very portable. Everything you need you can just fold right out of the walls, or the ground. If you ask me, I think we could conserve resources by having everyone live in something like this, because how much space do we really "need"?

No its not a spaceship, however your kids might be pleased to know this is a tree house. The clever and simple design makes this successful.

If your homeless you might consider your options a little more carefully.

Whether your a space geek or not this design is very modern and futurist like, however it does not lose the quality of comfort.

Foust Presentation Board

First off, I would really like to thank everyone that helped us with this board. I was pleased the way it came out, however, I thought there were a ffew kinks in it. One of which was the presentation of the black against this olive green color. I looked good up close but you cannot see it from a distance. I felt like the thumbnails could have had a contrasting strip behind them to push them out a little more, or even what Tommy said with bringing them up farther so that the title would run perpendicular to the thumbnails. Overall, it was a real struggle but I learned quite a few things from it, and brought that into my studio midterm presentation.
