Prototyping is a great part of design.  It is especially great when it involves prototyping retail spaces and getting to do it at 1:1 scale!  CISCO approached IDEO to create a full scale retail environment to test out their new Telepresence technology.  The technology is great fun, and it was enjoyable to test-drive it in the retail space we built.  I was the design lead on this project and guided a small design team and contractors to fabricate this space.
