A roof over your head

School of Architecture students Jordan Thompson (left) and Shawn Walsh apply finishing touches to the roof of a “koshikake machiai” — a traditional Japanese teahouse waiting bench — in the Elizabeth Danforth Butterfly Garden. They and other architecture students constructed the bench with guidance from Japanese master carpenter Tamotsu Edo, whose visit was sponsored by the Visiting East Asian Professionals Program in Arts & Sciences and the School of Architecture.
