the squid

My good friend, Chad Carpenter, designed this pavilion structure for an under-utilized and ill-equipped courtyard in CCA's Hooper Graduate Center on the San Francisco campus. As CCA's SF Studios Supervisor, I 'commissioned' Chad to come up with something for the courtyard to provide shelter from the elements -something that we could build 'in-house'.

Chad put this together as his thesis project for his Master of Architecture degree. Chad, myself, and a talented sculpture grad named Patrick Gillespie, installed 'the squid' in '08/'09.

Alan Rorie took these shots.
