    Downtime

    bryan boyer Jan 13 '05 9

    While in theory it seems nice to have studio final crit before the finals for all of our other classes-- thus letting us focus on history papers and drawings assignments and such-- in reality it's not so great to be back in Boston right now.

    The spring semester doesn't officially start until the beginning of February so there wont be much in the way of activity here for a while. We've actually been having thesis reviews this week and I would have been posting images but my camera, along with my laptop and cellphone, were stolen while I was in San Francisco. So that sucks.

      Any advice for for a construction student? My undergrad was construction and I have been working for 6 years in the construction industry, but have always wanted to be on the design side.

      tiny- a solid knowledge of how things are actually built will be a great advantage for you, though sometimes it seems like a little momentary suspension of reason results in great breakthroughs. It's more about engineering than construction, but you may enjoy the book Informal by Cecil Balmond if you're not already familiar with his work. good luck with your applications!

      Last time I checked they index all applicants by favorite song, preferred sock color, height, and 2nd letter of your first name...
