My semester is officially over. I turned in a set of drawings for Professional Practice today and that was the end. Two years of architecture school officially done. I can't believe it has already been two years.
The above image of the exhibit that I helped to design/build/curate doesn't do justice to how good the space looked. I was already well drunk at this point and the lighting is hard to photograph with a point and shoot camera. It will be professionally photographed soon and I will get copies to post here. When we began, our Hollywood Studio was a dingy old white space with a yellow tile floor. We completely transformed it and I was very pleased with the outcome.
Highlights of The Show:
-The surprise and excitement of most of the faculty upon seeing the space.
-The introduction of the Woodbury University/Julius Shulman Fellowship. (Have I told you about the Julius Shulman Institute at Woodbury? Probably not, because I still don't know much about it, but he has been hanging around a lot.)
-Being introduced to Shulman and he hit on my date and asked her if he could take her for a ride on his walker.
-Watching someone spill a glass of red wine and seeing Julius Shulman forbid anyone from walking in it or wiping it up unitl he could borrow someones camera to photograph it.
-Seeing the place fill up to about 400 people not 10 minutes after we had finished painting alll of the lines on the floor.
-Meeting new Los Angeles architecture school brethren
and realizing people actually read Archinect.
And. I have to take a minute to acknowledge the fact that I worked with an amazing team of people spearheaded by Ingalill Wahlroos-Ritter, one of the greatest teachers that I have ever worked with.
For those who missed it, it will be on again the week of the AIA convention, and I will (probably) be hosting walk-and-talks if you would like to come by.
Other than that, I am happy that summer is here. I am currently working for three Norman's on unrelated projects, which I find a little odd.
One of them will be on display at LACMA on May 18th. I am doing some 3D modeling related to the Grand Ave development, but beyond that I am not sure what it is for or even what the LACMA exhibit is about. Details as I know them.
Life is good. Enjoy your Summer.
