    fall 2010: you may be very informative... but you are also a tough s.o.b...

    John Tubles Dec 13 '10 5

    20 units suck!
    After getting that out of the way… actually I am glad that fall quarter is over because 20 units of architecture class including thesis is (or I guess now…was) hell…

    This quarter for me was the epitome of the term “archi-torture”… term paper here, history test there, +research and design... but I have to admit I did learn a lot! so this was my fall 2010 quarter in photos…

    reading for thesis: since our studio is a big warehouse we have a bit of a studio culture problem... people are just being toooooo loud! so i tend to read on top of the school parking structure...

      That board looks big but does it really explain all the information that is going on in the building? Or was the bulk of your energy spent on those sexy renderings and that awesome model? Which look great by the way.
