November kicks off the month we all associate with giving thanks. Here at the Knowlton School of Architecture we have a lot to be thankful for. We have the resources and funding of a large university but the intimate community and support of a small college.
Tomorrow, Nov. 7th, Knowlton welcomes the internationally renowned architectural firm BIG's Kai-Uwe Bergmann. Tomorrow, Bergmann gives a lecture entitled Hedonistic Sustainability. Kai-Uwe Bergmann is Partner, Business Development of BIG, Bjarke Ingels Group based in Copenhagen.
All lectures are free and open to the public. The lecture will be held at Knowlton Hall, room 250 at 5:30pm on Wednesday.

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.
