We are currently learning how to design a courthouse this semester. We were asked to pick a precedent courthouse to analyze and are now on our way to so to do some site analysis. The ball has started to roll. I have been filming and recruiting camera men in my cause but so far I’m solo. I also forgot to mention that I will be traveling to Prague for a credit class from March 1-8. So look forward to some international video blogging. We also will be traveling to Panama in May from the 14-25 as part of our required travel studio. I plan on brining my board for some Atlantic and Pacific Rim waves. Things are looking up for our program. Maybe it’s the thought of warm weather coming soon.
Virginia Prize recently passed. For those who don’t know Virginia prize is a competition held among the three schools of architecture in Hampton, UVA, and Virginia Tech. Two of them are nationally ranked, one is #1. Talk about competition. My entry was picked for the local scholarship award and will be shipped with the other eight winners from Hampton to do battle with the other two schools. I hope to do well but placing at home feels good enough right now. Sarah Robertson and Daisy Williams wrote the program this year and can be read here. The program is written by one of the three schools and is passed along every year; it was our turn this year. I will post pics after the state judging is done. I leave you with my first compilation video and three students discussing their Virginia Prize woe.s
