Digital Daffodil Pavilion on Pattee Lawn

The large white and yellow structure that graced on the Pattee Mall last week was produced by Dave Celento, a professor of architecture, and his architecture class. The installation is officially called the Digital Daffodil Pavilion.

Students in last fall’s ARCH 497C Digital Fabrication created the installation as a class project, but it was only constructed last week. The delay seemed to have worked out well, as the design seems perfect for spring.

All the elements were designed digitally and constructed using a computer controlled mill by the students. The design itself was inspired by flower petals and, unlike many of the sculptures around campus, students are encouraged to interact with the pavilion, rearranging petals or simply sitting inside.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day. Located at 215 Colonnade Blvd., there are few surprises at the chain’s new location. With rows of rocking chairs out front, checker boards and a game of peg solitaire at every table, I could have been at any franchise location in the country — not that that’s a bad thing.
