    New is a relative term.

    A new semester started here at the University of Minnesota some six weeks ago and just now I remember I have this blog to post to. There are busy people in the world and then there are architecture grad students... can I get an amen?

    Anyway, I somehow managed to put together the most radical-est semester ever this go 'round:

    * Studio is focusing on digital fabrication techniques and small spaces with [Charlie Lazor](http://www.flatpackhouse.com/flatpak.htm) and [Garrett Finney](http://home.earthlink.net/~garrettfinney/).
    * A great seminar with [Robert Ferguson](http://arch.cdes.umn.edu/FACULTY/Roster/RobertFerguson.html) called poetically "The Cave and the Light" in which we're tracing the slippery concept of the grotesque through architectural history.
    * A directed study with [Lee Anderson](http://arch.cdes.umn.edu/FACULTY/Roster/LeeAnderson.html) exploring some generative methods for creating forms.

    More on my progress along these lines of inquiry soon... now that I've got my bearings again.
