Field trips planned: Today, March 1 a visit to the Lionel Groulx Metro station site.
Tomorrow March 2 : a Visit to the Biodome to see how planting looks indoor in the Montreal Climate; also the Bio Dome is a large scale pavillion with an interestin structure. A walk across the Olympic site will bring up issues of scale, of siting, of materials and of the problem of 'meeting the ground'.

Assignment due next Tuesday, March 9 at 9.00Hrs.
The class divides into four groups: a model group, and three precedent groups Churches, Word Exhibitions, and 'regular' Exhibition pavillions.
*The mdel group will construct a site model in consultation with David Speller and present it at the crit. This model will be the base model for the whole group from then on.
*The other three groups will research  precedents of 'pavillion structures' under the heading  assigned to them. Powerpoint presentations of the 3 groups to the whole group are foreseen. A projector and a computer will be ready on Tuesday morning.
