Hey all, I thought I'd introduce myself and talk a little about my plans for the blog.
So my name is Andreas. I grew up in the Boston area, and am approaching the end of my first semester at the GSD's Urban Design program. I have an M.Arch from Washington University in Saint Louis and before that studied American History as an undergraduate at Boston University. I've worked a little in Shanghai and Brooklyn.
Obviously, a school blog is going to deal primarily with the goings on of my time here, but it will also be a way to work out my own ideas on the topics I care about, ideally in coordination with classwork. I am in an urban design program so this is likely to mean a general slant towards cities, rather than buildings, but really, I suppose the fun of these things is not knowing where they are going at the outset. I'll try to post for real sometime this weekend.
