2.Return to partners with wood slices, attempt to make amends through collective model-making/brainstorming. Get lost in the process. Discover a potential proposal for project. 

3. Re-imagine art school as public street-side gallery. 

4.Create public paths that bring pedestrians into the school's galleries and performance space.  

5.Juggle the binary of keeping young students safe from the outside world and the public engaged with the school.
