My final leaf project used a textured paper and green tissue paper to accent a red Japanese maple leaf. The four points on the box and the four added points from the tissue paper reemphasize that the leaf has seven leaves and a stem making it eight parts.

I thought that the lecture was interesting in how his started out with asking 'If we were fish'. I agree that the human race is like a storm in that we destroy almost everything we touch. Most times though we rebuild what was there. Architecture 2030 is a blueprint. It isn't how we make things sustainable, but why. It's knowing about the building codes and finding a way to change them to make it so the buildings in 2030 will use absolutely no carbon based products. He also talked about if we take something sustainable from the environment we need to be able to give that back. Like putting solar panels on the roof and using rain water for restroom water.
My group talked about how we need to make sure that the precedent related to our project. Not look exactly like it, but take some thing from it like form or color. Also we talked about the placement of the twigs. Does the twig have an exact place or are they just stuck in there? Another thing was the overall size of the twigs in relationship to the rest of the project. Are the twigs too big? Small? Maybe the paper needs to be a different size or you need to use a different binding agent.
