Some very exciting things happening in the architecture studio at cranbrook this year:
Bill Massie as new Architect-in-residence
Frist Semester project (optional for second years): trailer
New tools: laser cutter and CNC router
new metalshop space
new computers (sometime soon)
renovated studio building
I have info and photos of all this stuff which i'll be posting in the next few days.
My experience here so far has been great and i think its going to be an incredible 2 years. The first 2.5 weeks have gotten off to a kind of slow start due to all the new things listed above, but mostly its been really wonderful. I don't have internet access at my house and the studio computer lab was down for a while, but now i have more regular access and the blogging will begin...
I'll start off with some links to check out:
Cranbrook Academy of Art
Cranbrook Architecture dept. (new page in the works)
Massie Architecture (this hasn't been updated in like 2 years)
Architecture studio blogs (eric is currently updating this)
this blog will be somewhat of a mirror of my cranbrook blog (which i haven't posted to yet...), since i plan to post most of the same info to both locations, but i think the archinect blog will have a greater number of viewers who are more informed about architecture so the posts on this blog will probably reflect that.
