Yale School of Architecture (Susan)

  • Long overdue update.

    I graduated from Yale over a year ago! And I've suffered from Blogger's Guilt again... 

    Anyway, this will be my last post on my Yale Student blog. Perhaps I'll begin a new one describing my new life at Columbia GSAPP's C-Lab, where I've ended up and am extremely, extremely happy.

    Happy December, everyone!


  • Sandy / sadNY

    Last week/this week: many workplaces were closed, so many could volunteer at the beaches where we spent the summer. Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Xmas, and NYE will buoy continued attention and effort through December. Coming soon are January/February. The East Coast will freeze. Holiday sentimentality...


  • Public Interest Design / SEED workshop at Yale

    Are you attending this workshop on January 13/14 and coming from out of town? Check it out! http://www.publicinterestdesign.com/yale-university/ Let me know if you need a place to stay in New Haven (susansurface at gmail) and can't afford a hotel. I obviously can't promise to host everyone, but...

  • Remember....

    The schools we go to are the reflections of the society that created them. Nobody is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them. Nobody is going to teach you your true history, teach you your true heroes, if they know that that knowledge will help set you free. Schools in amerika...

  • 2010

    When you are enmeshed in the stresses, deadlines, social-climbing, and competitiveness of architecture school (and in some cases, architecture career) it is easy to misplace priorities. The slippage started when I chose to make a career out of what I love to do. I have the immense fortune and...


  • Stuff I like

    I've been wanting to do a "blogs I like" post for a while, and now is as good a time as ever, I suppose. It's a bit of a guilty secret, but I rarely read architecture blogs. Not even the big, famous ones. I do follow the architecture, art and design blogs of a few friends, but it's mainly because...


  • Spring 2009 Open House

    A real blog update is coming soon soon soon. (Bloggers guilt strikes again.) I just wanted to say a special HEY Y'ALL! To everyone who will be attending the Open House at Yale on Thursday. Please come say hello after Greg Lynn's talk. I'll be taking photos during the lecture, and I have purple...


  • Women in Architecture

    Why are there so few women in architecture? According to Yale School of Architecture's Dean, it's because women have families. Do architects of all genders not face work/life balance conflicts? Does the hours-to-pay-ratio typical of architecture not pose a problem to architects of all genders? Do...


  • Past Life

    Since my last post with all of the candid photos from lectures at Yale, a few people I’ve photographed have asked, “Will this end up on the blog?” Maybe! I take the photos for the school. It’s my official workstudy job that provides me with lunch money most weeks, and the...


  • Images from lectures and around the schoool....

    I plan to come back and edit this post a bit later, but for now, here's a bit of a who's who around the school lately. TOYO ITO LECTURE Someone from... something... contacted me and asked me to post a blog for this lecture. I don't know if I'm supposed to do so here or elsewhere, but hey. Here it...


  • video interlude

    This video for "Corporate Cannibal" by Grace Jones is incredible. (Sorry, I don't know how to embed video, or if we can do it at all.)



  • phone camera

    Here are some notes from Globalization Space: Here is a bad photo of a conceptual drawing I did: Here is a photo of me sitting in the weird wall cutout in the library:


  • Mid-Term Update

    I've been reading Bess Williamson's excellent blog, The Right to Design - specifically, the entry on A World Without Stairs. It raised some questions for me regarding universal design and accessibility. These questions are almost ridiculously basic, but as a (future) architect I should know the...


  • hi its susan

    For my first entry, I'll share a funny story. Fellow Archinect editor Mason White was on one of my reviews first semester. We were introduced to each other by my critic, Mark Foster Gage, because a safe place to hide luggage was needed - and that place was under my embarrassingly messy desk. But I...
