UNLV Student Photography Exhibit

I have mentioned before that the exhibit was covered in the Rebel Yell. Well it also warranted an interviewed by the producer of the UNLV Rebcast! The exhibit is down now, but I thought you might enjoy reading some of the comments that were made by those who viewed the exhibit. and you can still see the images on our web site at http://www.library.unlv.edu/arch/events/aias/ Here are some of the comments we received: *the exhibit was a success to me as it did a good job of highlighting the experience of a diverse group of students. *the exhibit was very well composed. Combined with the Friday @ 5 event the timing couldn’t have been better. It’s a great feeling to know that there are these events to look forward to, to interrupt the monotony of studio/class work. This will be hard to top in the future. *the exhibit was put together extremely well. I appreciated the collaborative efforts of the students within our school.

Drury Crawley from the Department of Energy posted information to the Society of Building Science Educators list today, on the beta release of a new energy design tool. It is designed to work with Sketchup; you must also have EnergyPlus V2.1 before installing. Below is his posting, quoted with his permission. "DOE and NREL are pleased to announce the public beta release of the Energy Design Plugin--an EnergyPlus plugin for Google SketchUp. The plugin can be downloaded for free from the EnergyPlus web site at: http://www.energyplus.gov/energy_design_plugin.html The plugin makes it easy to create and edit the building geometry in your EnergyPlus input files. The plugin also allows you to launch EnergyPlus simulations and view the results without leaving SketchUp.
