In preparations for the end of semester exams the university has in place a study week. It is meant to be a non teaching time, with no tutorials or lecturers scheduled for those 5 days.
This however, for the architecture students is really a chance to tidy up their portfolios, sketch books, presentation boards and repair and take pictures of the many models they've made so far in the semester.
Ultimately the time is used to work on their final semester project without interruption. Which in the case of the 2nd year students is the final generator project on structure. So whilst I lay in bed staring at the ceiling 30+ students are packed in a fluorescent lit studio modelling away in time for the crit on Tuesday.
