  • ARCH education summit

    I just read the symposium review for the summit @ SCIarc by Orhan Ayyüce. Was there any student interest in the crowd? I was flipping through SCIarc reps' blogs, no comments. I guess final projects take precedence.


  • End of the lecture series

    We had our final lecturer tonight, Sean Godsell, from Australia. He kicked off a two week series at our school. It sounds like he is going to stay in the southwest the entire time, ending up at Berkley. This is the second architect from Australia that spoke for over two hours (last year, Glen...


  • Here goes (please comment)

    Ok, so here is my project this semester. I will post the description that I wrote to explain the project: Parasitic Catalyst Parasite- an organism that lives on or in an organism of another species, known as the host, from the body of which it obtains nutriment. Catalyst- something that causes...


  • What to do, what to do.

    We are real close to our final presentation, yet I feel I have not designed anything this semester. I am beginning to worry. I have ideas for what I want to do, but I am developing a fear of putting pencil to paper. Pretty crazy, I know. We had to design a catalyst that will change the way we use...


  • Studio Pics

    The new and improved architecture studios (well, not so new. We've had them wall-less since the beginning of the fall term). I like it.


  • Lectures lost forever

    We have another lecturer coming to speak about aesthetic sustainability tomorrow. It got me thinking...Why don't we record these lectures and archive them in the library? Too much work? Is it forbidden because of some sort of contract agreement? I would think future generations would benefit from...


  • Review images

    Just before spring break, we had a review. We are making a map of phoenix, defining connectors. i feel like i'm connected at the fingertips to my cpu! The studio is very interesting. I drive around town now, noticing all of the dirt lots that seem to occur randomly. My friend's project is dealing...


  • Its been a while

    Well, it took me a long time to recover from last semester. It was brutal. The trip to the big easy was great! It was my first time in the south. Dixie Brewing Co. Classmates in N.O. We completed design proposals for New Orleans prefabricated housing. It was the first time that I fundamentally...


  • Post-New Orleans

    Friday, we had a site analysis mini review. We're moving right along in studio. I guess our pace is going to be elevated here quickly. I feel a little bit rushed, a little pressed for time, you might say (hence, the 'non-posting' of the New Orleans photos. I'll do that tomorrow). Anyone out there...


  • Off to New Orleans

    We're off! I'll post pictures when I get back.


  • Isn't it too early to be busy

    Is it historically true that your first semester of your senior year is just crazy? So much stuff to do. Anyway, tomorrow i'm delivering a presentation on Shigeru Ban. My group did a study on some of his work including the paper log house, a temporary relief housing shelter. Fascinating! If you...


  • Touring the Palm Harbor manufacturing plant

    My first post...Exciting! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity of reporting for you. I'll try to post on a regular basis. I think that this will help me keep organized as to the happenings of my school as well. I tend to lose track of current events, lost in the world that is not school(or...
