Cardboard Bridge Structure of William Martin


I took the first structure class of William Martin at NYIT after I dropped the old structure class when I was with Prof. Rondo Imas. Imas time is hard for me to do many credits, but Imas is great actually. After the first class, I always took structure classes with William Martin, until the last structure class, Advance Structure II. The early classes, we learned a lot of calculations, and a lot of methods. The last class is different. We design the bridge, and we vote to build the real scale of one bridge.

Straw Structure as the attempt

William Martin cheered my design a lot, but I left 2 points to win the vote. I know that my bridge would work in the real time. There is no problem on it. If I got the most vote, I will never learn more things to solve the problem. My partner who work on the basement said that people selected to one which had most problem. When the whole class finished building the cardboard tube bridge, William Martin cracked the bridge when he stood on it. He said, he would be the first one who tried, because he had life insuarance. At the end of this semester, he said that the bridge supported itself, but not the people. I am sad that we cannot finish it. When I did not get most vote, I found myself wanted to learn to solve the problem as the real architect life. Right now, problem cannot be solved. William Martin may let us continue the work in next semester, but I will not have a lot of time. I just want to graduate then.


Drill Cardboard with Drilling Machine

Before we built the final bridge, I designed a way to solve the problem, and other friends did, too. I do not know the reason that we have to keep the original design to make to real bridge. Why don’t we change a little bit, just add some more tubes, and we will have fun with pizza on the bridge. Not only my idea which could work, but also many friends’ idea I like.

Drill Cardboard Bridge while building process

“Alright Alright Slow Down”, I would listen to The Academy Is… , then. Bridge can support itself, but not for the people, that is not wrong. I am an artist, and also an architecture student. Architecture is the artwork which people can be in it. If the bridge cannot have people on it, then it became artwork. It is a good thing. Right now, I already love it. There is no water or river for us, but it is our bridge.

Dear, Sw

By the upcoming month, I will update my website of NYITstructure.org sooner as I did in the last semester.

As a result of my internet-connection problem, I can only update my website at school. Please do not worry, the internet connection will work soon, after the computer engineer fixes it at my house.

Although the rule for late assignment was written in our class syllabus, I did not take it seriously during the previous month, because I understand the problem of my website. I check the students’ assignments during the discussions in class. If you show your work in class, you will not get 10% off from your scores. This does not mean that you do not have to upload your assignments to my website. Your uploaded files are the most important part of this class, because at the end of the semester, I will grade you based on the work you put on the website. Please make sure that you have finished every part of the required assignments.

Thank you so much for letting me know this problem, and also for your attention to the assignments. I will send a notification e-mail to every student in our class. This will be a good understanding and a new agreement of how to submit the work in this month. When my internet connection is fixed, we will use the same rule as in the course syllabus.

Sincerely,

Dear, professor Martin

It will be very helpful if you update your website (http://nyitstructures.org) at the first day that the homework is assigned.

According to your course syllabus, the students need to upload the assignments through the website, and if the students submit them one day late, their scores will be minus 10%. For the previous month, you always updated your upload tool on the website in the late afternoon of the due date of assignment. Many times, you request extra paper, which you did not tell us to do in the class period. Your class is done at 9pm, so it is hard for us to finish everything before the midnight, especially for some students like me, who take another class on Tuesday morning, and I need to go to sleep earlier on Monday night.

Last semester, Spring 2009, I took a structure class with you, and you always updated all assignments very early in every week. I really appreciated that, and other students told me that they liked your system, too. Many students keep registering for your classes in higher levels, because of your great work. You are known as one of the best professors in architecture school of NYIT. Please do not disappoint us this semester.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. Santi:

Please refund my purchase for the Zonny product, DVD player, and please also pay for all shipping costs.

On October 31, 2008, I made a payment through http://www.Electronicplayer.com for a new Zonny DVD player – NS575P/S. It is supposed to be able to play audio CD, Mp3 disc and VCD as in the product description, but it cannot. The only thing that it can play is DVD. I am sure that I did not set anything wrong, because I read the manual very carefully. Moreover, when I search for this problem on internet, I found many customers complained on Zonny DVD player – NS575P/S with the same problem. I will ship this DVD player back to you. It should be arrived within next week.

I have been your long-time customer, so I am very disappointed to see a Zonny technical problem. Please provide me with a credit card refund for this case, $220.

The product_____$200
First Shipping____$10
Shipping back____$10
Total cost_____$220

Sincerely,

Sw Eden won the price

Sw Eden had 2 1/2 days to work with his architecture project last weekend. He spent the first day by hanging out and drew 2 killing cats pics. The second day, he found this model was real hard to work. He did not sleep and nearly died in the last day. He looked at his model and thought that it was real terrible. Nothing was neat. Sw Eden brought it to school and compared with his friends in the same class. He felt so depressed. Everybody made the good and elaborate work, but not a lot of details. (Because Sw Eden thought too much and put too much detail. He was just sick.) This was the reason that Sw Eden had to work very roughly. He had many things to do. He was hopeless before the class began. He did not print his headline of the final paper for his presentation. He just wrote without drafting by hand.

The professors and other juries who went to the class and gave the price for each model, spent more than 1 hour to find the winning model. Incredible, Sw Eden’s model was one of those winners. Sw Eden got panic so much at the first time because he thought that it would be the worst one for the example.

At last, the worst day became the best day. Sw Eden found some place to write this blog and sketch some more killing-cats ways.

I had talked about this model to some friends that I called, ‘the pink spider’. I arranged the spider web form by thin pieces of wood and decorated it with the pink crystal plastic sheet panels.

The first one is the wood from. I had to cut each piece and glued it together.
The second one is the final look. Each pink panel was made by 2 layers of plastic and between the two had the water color mixed with glue and paint in it. Behind the surface, there are many thin piece of wood attached back to the clear plastic in every corner of the web, you can see some of then in this pic. like the white things.
