Today we visited the Finnish Embassy and toured the building inside and out. An interesting aspect of the embassy is the front facade which has a green wall of plant life growing on it. The deciduous plant's leaves keep out the sun's rays in the summer, and allow in the much needed warmth in the winter.

The second half of the day was spent in studio developing Project 1. All students were hard at work and have really settled in to the "studio culture" here at CUA.
