Recreation, Comfort, Privacy & Ecology

Books for Recreational ReadingWe received more suggestions about building design and resources in the new LLC:

Computer spaces [should be arranged] in way that people have privacy of what’s on their screens and allow space on desk for books.

Building should be designed with a focus on sustainable living/green development:
  • Skylights
  • Renewable building materials
  • Photovoltaic panels to power air conditioning
  • Compact fluorescents
Media wanted: a Playstation 3, an Xbox, and all computers should have World of Warcraft

Study areas should be designed like a room with fluffy couches.

Actual reading books just for enjoyment, or for English class book reports.
