    community which added a unique and beneficial immersion component to the project They re so communal as a body said Kyle Plantico a CU Boulder senior in environmental design and part of the summer crew So for us to actually have the design fulfill their needs I think we have to kind of do everything they do and figure out how they live The process also parlays into important understandings about the architectural work that many of the students plan to pursue in their professional careers They re realizing that when you build something every decision that you make is going to start to affect the others said Polizzi Sometimes we make a mistake and we have to think about the repercussions all the way down the line and think about how we can turn that mistake into an opportunity But ultimately the artfully and skillfully created hut from a dedicated bunch of students has profound implications for all I ve had so many community members from Lama come up to me and say Thank you for making this This is just going to make such a difference said Polizzi And I ve had so many students come up and say This is the best class I ve ever taken I ve learned so much and I m putting in a lot of hours but it doesn t feel like work Jordan Levan a senior in environmental design and part of the summer crew notes the bond that s developed among the students and instructors while part of the special project We ve all become great friends from working on this together said Levan I think this is going to be one of the most memorable things that I ve done in my years at CU It s definitely going to be the biggest project that I ve worked on and it s also my favorite so far Visit the students project website at http cuboulder wix com cudb For more information about CU Boulder s environmental design program visit http www colorado edu envd Support Environmental Design Photos Photo by Jade Polizzi CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Lynn Lickteig CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Lynn Lickteig CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Stephen Cardinale CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Stephen Cardinale CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Stephen Cardinale CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Stephen Cardinale CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Stephen Cardinale CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Stephen Cardinale CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Stephen Cardinale CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Stephen Cardinale CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Stephen Cardinale CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Jade Polizzi CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Jade Polizzi CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Jade Polizzi CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Jade Polizzi CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Jade Polizzi CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Jade Polizzi CU Boulder environmental design Photo by Jade Polizzi CU Boulder environmental

    that a lot of them were caught in that moment trying to figure out how to cover this event in a way that had never been done before he said There s a lot of interesting historical artifacts in there too lots of cigarettes people drinking coffee on the air and things like that that we wouldn t do today But the politicians you could see were wrestling with it as well Particularly Bobby Kennedy and LBJ who had historically had some tension who had to be in close proximity on camera for such a long duration You could imagine what that was like The live coverage of the Kennedy assassination set the stage for TV to play a role in many significant American events down the road says Stevens In the ensuing years it s television that changed the way we thought about civil rights conflict he said It s television that changed our opinion on Watergate All of those events being able to see the ramifications and results for ourselves in our living rooms changed our relationship with the public Stevens says the tragic irony of this being the first live breaking news event covered on a national scale is that it was about a man who clearly understood the power of TV John F Kennedy was the first presidential candidate to make effective use of television using the images to promote his message in a revolutionary way Stevens said His whole political career and national politics kind of rose on television So it was fitting in a tragic kind of way that his assassination was recorded this way Another irony is that the news coverage of the assassination launched the careers of several reporters who would become prominent household names Names like Dan Rather Robert MacNeil Jim Lehrer Peter Jennings and Bob Schieffer Image courtesy the National Parks Service Features News Releases Multimedia Center In Depth Series CU Boulder Facts For The Media RSS Feeds Campus Communications Related Features New Asian Studies minor launches Student realizes groundbreaking Olympic dream Team that planned torch relay across Russia is led by CU alum In mammal responses to climate change some traits are predictors BioFrontiers partners with world s oldest biotech industry Breweries Related Videos 2014 Colorado Economic Outlook Undergraduate researchers find rare western bumblebee Testing unmanned aircraft in Colorado One of the world s leading women in science Why do we love horror films A CU Professor explains Editor s Pick Learning Teaching Helping K 12 students explore the art of storytelling Forever Buffs program connects CU Boulder alumni Residence hall helps students gain understanding of sustainable design Undergraduate student gains hands on experience in disease ecology Serving Colorado Engaged in the World Bullying prevention through Shakespeare CU Boulder Facts Facts and statistics about CU Boulder More Alert Sign Up Sign up today for real time info about campus closures and other emergencies More Information for Visitors A to Z Directory Online Services Visiting Campus Directions Parking Transportation Campus
