Song: Cruel by St. Vincent
Place: Living Room Studio
Time: 12:39 PM
This semester is the housing studio. It is the only time in which we must work in partners for studio. I am in the Lot-Ek studio with has three rotating professors; Ada, Giuseppe, and Thomas. Also we have a new studio director, Hillary Sample from YSOA. Needless to say, I have many voices in my head. I am fortunate to have a partner that performs on the same wave length as me, but it is still a struggle to appease everyone. Unlike other studios, we are tackling issues of housing with urban food production. Also, this is Hillary Sample's first time at GSAPP, so she is getting her bearings and trying out new things.
My main gripe: change MWF studio to just M/Th studio. This gives us enough time to digest opinions and produce something substantial. I think with MWF, we are constantly preparing for another desk-crit, pin-up, or presentation.
Here are our mid-term presentations.

Avery Hall is a madhouse. People get ugly, tired, and desperate. Fortunately, the insanity produces amazing things. I want to showcase the talent of my comrades without the verbiage. Have fun!
