What did your group achieve today? Who did what? Where is the evidence?
In Today's art class, I worked on finishing sketching all the windows on the cardboard, cutting windows, creating a fence out of tape roll, and created twisted and curved little columns. My partner, Kai-Ting, did the same thing as I did. We have 4 layers of cardboard in total, so each of us got 2 layers and cut out windows. However, this time, Kai-Ting did work more than I did because she painted the floral patterns on the tape role while I was struggling with cutting a thick cardboard.
What did you do well today as a group?
I have seen other groups shouting at each other and having communication troubles. On the other hand, my group, Kai-Ting and I listened to each other's opinion respectfully and applied all the ideas that we have in our minds on our facade of the building.
What is the plan for next class? Who is doing what?
Next class, we are planning on coloring the cardboard and decorate windows. Again, Kai-ting painting two layers of cardboard and myself coloring other two layers. We are not sure about the windows yet, but we are planning to decorate windows together.

What did you personally achieve today?- Describe how- what techniques did you use?
I finished making the window frames with different colored wires and glued them around or on the windows. Since Hundertwasser used different windows, I bend wires in different shapes or patterns. For example, some of the window frames are curvy like waves meanwhile others are twisted with several other wires. In addition, I also painted the half of the skin colored layer and added double sided to tape on every layer. To add more, I also colored and painted the windows on two layers.
How did the rest of the group do today? (any issues) Did they all have jobs and assist with the progress of your sculpture? Explain
In general, my group went pretty well today. My partner, Kai-Ting, and I divided our jobs equally. Our today's progress was to color the bottom part of the facade and to polish our windows. We all did equal jobs. However, I was the one who was focusing more on the windows while Kai-Ting was more on painting the cardboard.
What challenges did you face today (if any)?
In many times, it was quite challenging to choose a color for the bottom of the facade. As you can see the picture, my team used a skin color. The skin color came out after our exploration of colors. First, personally, I wanted to do bright colors but soon realized it makes us to just concentrate on that bright color not the actual work. In addition, I mixed neon pink, yellow, and white, the colors that I wanted to use in this project, and eventually the skin color came out. I think it matches really well!
What are your last steps/ plans to complete this task? (2 classes left) This can be individually what you’ll do or group.
I can not believe that there are only two classes left, however, for next class, I am thinking of making and putting columns to our facade, gluing fences on the work, and lastly the most important thing, roof garden on the top of the building.
