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.

Ultrasound (อัลตราซาวด์) ทางก้น

การ Ultrasound (อัลตราซาวด์) ทางทวารหนัก ใช้หัวตรวจแบบเดียวกับทางช่องคลอด แตกต่างจากการอัลตราซาวด์ทางหน้าท้อง โดย ห้ามมีปัสสาวะอยู่ในกระเพาะปัสสาวะ ซึ่งโดยปกติ สาวตั้งครรภ์ ต้องกลั้นฉี่เป็นจำนวนมาก

การอัลตราซาวด์ทางก้น เหมาะสำหรับการตรวจหาเนื้องอก หรือซีสที่มีขนาดเล็ก แต่ทางหน้าท้อง เหมาะสำหรับตรวจหาเนื้องอกขนาดใหญ่ ลองไปถามคนที่เขาเคยทำทางก้นดูซิ เวลาท่านโดนตรวจ ท่านจะรู้สึกเหมือนเวลาขับถ่ายอุจจาระตอนท้องร่วง

ตึกนี้ William Martin บอกว่าเหมือนผู้หญิงท้อง แต่ข้าพเจ้าคิดว่าเหมือนเต่า
เราเรียกสถามปัตยกรรมนี้ว่า Ingalls Rink of Eero Saarinen at Yale (Set)

Rink ก็คือลานเล่น skate หิมะ และ Eero Saarinen คือ สถาปนิก นักออกแบบ (Architect) แล Yale คือมหาวิทยาลัยที่ตึกนี้ตั้งอยู่

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,
