Let me update you on what's been happening..
The Michael Webb exhibition has just closed, for all that missed it, photos form the event are here. It was full of 2/6 of Archigram, (Webb, Crompton), Kent Kleinman, Lebbeus Woods, Mark Wigley, and a random assortment of others who chose not to speak up during the praise of Webb.
Last semester ended wether we wanted it or not. Architectonics (first year studio) left little for me to desire. The group dynamics brought everyone to a stressful conflict, resulting in half-finished ideas and sloppy models. I hate to say it, but I was really ashamed of my work for the first time. You can see the pictures from the crits here.
To see the second year crits from last semester, go here.
But no worries! I promise things are getting better this semester, the projects are better (and individual..), and involve design and that free-spirited thinking and poetics that I actually came to Cooper for. Not to mention, Descriptive Geometry is the most kick-ass class I have had, and it always gets better.
As a preview to this semester, our first two week project involved dissecting a certain poem and creating a spatial analogy that had some relationship to a tectonic quality. Here's a shot of one of my models..
The student lecture series is still under wraps, so no announcements on that as of yet. However there is an Architectural League sponsored lecture up and coming..

In other news, I've built a portfolio website over winter break to make that hip move into the future. Or perhaps I've missed it and online portfolios are no longer where it's at? Either way, check it out.. Not all of the areas have content, so be patient..
