Twitter profile picture


Now, this is just completely random.  While browsing my twitter feed the other day, I realized most people might not know what my profile picture represents.

At that resolution, it kind of looks like a poorly drawn happy face. I can tell you that it is not a happy face on purpose.

It is in fact a civil 3d surface. What makes it interesting is its location.  This is “slab” that sits under the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC. We had a project to help with the drainage/runoff of a proposed “bubble” that would fill the center portion of the museum. The slab was surveyed quite extensively.  The image shows the surface as we brought it into Revit, thus the bounding box. If I recall, the irony was that the elevation range of the surface was less than two feet across the entire slab. So, yes there are inlets in various spots.

And now you know the rest of the story. (Sorry Paul Harvey, but you left a pretty big stamp on my youth)
