For the scenario chosen, you are asked to finish the story. This requires some additional research and investigation that you must cite either in the response and at the end of the response. Make sure that your Write-up addresses the questions that are raised in the narrative. The write-up should be between two and three pages (900 – 1350 words Don and Samantha are married in 1946. They were high school friends and lovers before the war and waited to marry when Don got out of the Navy. Using the GI bill, Don goes back to the UofM to get his degree in architecture. While studying, he becomes fascinated with solar designs for houses. Don is a passionate guy and becomes totally absorbed with these designs. He remembers growing up with the depression and his family not having any money. News from home was not any better during the war, as the family was very limited by rationing. These lessons have profound impact on Don. He is frugal to a fault. He and S have found an apartment in Dinkytown and Don walks most any place that he can. After graduation, Don hopes to work for an architectural firm designing and building solar houses. Other events intercede as Samantha is now pregnant with their first child and their apartment is already too small. Don works extremely hard on his studies, graduates early, and takes a position with the firm of Conundrum and Riddle (still hoping to do solar). Reflect about the situation and general value set that D&S represent. What are their aspirations? Why does solar seem so desirable for Don? What sort of problems do you see coming along for this couple? After 20 years D&S are living comfortably in Edina. C&R has proven to be a very prosperous firm. They do not do any solar houses, but they have found their niche in designing large shopping malls (e.g. Rosedale, Southdale, and Ridgedale). Don is one of their top designers and has profited accordingly. One day he digs into a box and finds his old notes from college. There are designs for a solar house. Don remembers his youthful idealism as he looks around the house with all sorts of the latest electrical appliances. Digging a bit further, he finds the receipts and all of the product literature from when they put air conditioning into the house. He remembers the long (and sometimes spirited) conversations that he had with Samantha about get AC – it was only her insistence that made him commit to AC. What sorts of thoughts does Don have as he looks back? Does he think that he ‘sold out’ and moved away from solar? What happened to the idealism of 1946? Looking back, what would the ‘buy AC’ decisions been like? Why was Samantha such a big advocate? Why was it that Samantha’s views prevailed in this decision (after all Don was the breadwinner for the family)? After 30 years, D&S’s daughter, Matilda has also become an architect. She is a bit of a contrarian in their eyes. For all of her abilities and artistic prowess, she shuns the corporate development world of her father’s legacy and is now focusing on earth-sheltered houses. She is motivated by the energy-crisis, disillusioned by the Vietnam War. She sees the economy in recession and long gas lines at the filling station. For her, there must be a different path. Her projects include passive solar heating for some earth-sheltered homes. When she mentions this to her parents, she is surprised to learn that her father had been interested in this a long time ago. Don digs out his old plans and shows them to Matilda. A long conversation follows. Can you explain why solar was popular in 1946 and again in 1976 while interest was nearly zero in the early 1960s? Given our reliance on electricity for houses and given our sometimes interest in solar, what do you think is the path forward?
