So studio is moving along. Still not so sure what to make of it. We're doing some diagrams and what not. Analyzing Meyerson so that we can improve it. Does anyone know of a good, simple, easy to digest overview of modernist architecture? I've read Frampton's Modern Architecture, but would like something even simpler. It's embarassing how little I know. Julio asks us questions about modernism in class and we all just stare back at him because we don't know these major buildings he's talking about. We really touched on it very little in our theory courses, so I don't know where to look, what the good sources are etc. You know how it works. The first semester it's at the end, so you get a little Corbu. Then our second semester was...interesting. Leatherbarrow was on leave, so we got some guy who fetishized Fordism. He then found out he wasn't going to get a tenure position and just dropped the ball. Third semester was just jibba-jabba about metaclay or some crap.
I think my photography professor hates us. Well, it's a combination of things. First he just had rotator cuff surgery so he's in pain when he shows us how to use the camera. Second, no one asks or answers questions. It's just me, one other grad student and the rest are undergrads.
