Welcome to my blog!
So much is happening at the KSA in the next few weeks!
Tomorrow, Wednesday, we have Dan Kildee representing the Center for Community Progress on at 5:30pm. In addition to the weekly lecture series, also tomorrow, at 7:00pm is also the opening of the Banvard gallery featuring Travulgar Square: Ben Nicholson's Drawings! All are encouraged to come to Knowlton and check it out.
On Friday, we have off in honor of Veterans day. A fun fact, i live right by the Union Cemetery. The Union Cemetery became a burial site in 1806 when Northwest Territory pioneer and Revolutionary War veteran Balser Hess was buried there on the site of his family farm.
Next week KSA alums will be having a portfolio review session for interested KSA students. Ill keep you posted on details.
Since this is my first post, ill also discuss other activities that have taken place at the KSA. On Saturday, October 15, the Knowlton School of Architecture had it's annual Scholarship Luncheon event. More than 120 people attended the luncheon, which brought together donors and recipients to celebrate the generosity and support for students enrolled in all three of the KSA academic sections, Architecture, City Regional Planning and Landscape architecture.
"KSA alumnus Eddie George, the Heisman Trophy-winning tailback who holds the single season and single game rushing records for Ohio State and ranks second only to Archie Griffin in career yards, will be honored at halftime of Ohio State’s Oct. 28 Homecoming game against Wisconsin. The Ohio State University Department of Athletics will recognize George for his pending induction into the National Football Foundation & College Football Hall of Fame in December, and his official enshrinement this summer in South Bend, Indiana.
George, who received an undergraduate degree in landscape architecture from the Knowlton School of Architecture in 2001, and an MBA in 2009 from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, is a founding partner and Vice President of Marketing at EDGE, a planning, landscape architecture, and graphic design firm with offices in Columbus, Toledo, and Nashville, TN. In 2008, George was named a Distinguished Alumni by the OSU College of Engineering, an award that recognizes exceptional achievement in a particular field." (taken from KSA website)
Whats there to do for 20 something aged M. Arch student in Columbus:
I think i can finally say I have fully recovered from the Halloween Festivities that took place at High Ball in the Short North, as well as getting used to the time change.
Our architecture graduate school intramural teams have finished their rounds. Kickball made it to the Semi Finals in kickball while Flag Football didn't bode as well.
I took a visit to German Village this past weekend. If you haven't been you must check out the 32 room Book Store!
People are starting to get into the holiday spirit which i find bizarre, since its not even thanksgiving. The weather, here in columbus, doesn't lend itself to the holiday spirit. It hit 67 degrees today! While on the east coast they have already had their first snow!
I am a graduate student at the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University. My studies are a blend of theoretical and conceptual design with an emphasis on human spatial experience. In this blog I will attempt to provide an in depth look at what it is like to be a graduate student at Knowlton School of Architecture. In addition, I will share insight on life as an M.Arch Grad Student in Columbus in their 20 somethings.
