    Well, it's been awhile... Studio has been incredibly intense over the last month or so im trying to finish my thesis year off strong, Three weeks left to wrap everything up! (I'll post some images soon of the final product)

    Last week Peter Eisenman and Michael Graves had a sit down a New York Tech. Instead of a debate about design philosophy the talk was an interesting glimpse into how they met at Princeton and the influence of Colin Rowe on Peter, Michael and dean Dimaio. Of course, there was alot of friendly bickering and some cheap shots, but the most insightful discussion was on design education and the quality and integrity of most of the portfolios that are sent to both their offices they had some surprising things to say.

    I stumbled upon this the other day; i heard it was used by the CIA and its now outdated by their standards, so they sold it to Google.

    So we were all hauled out of studio this afternoon, this has happened before. Not the first time and probably wont be the last. In the past I would get really pissed, but now i just look at it as an opportunity to focus on other classes that Ive probably been neglecting a little to much so far... View full entry
