Studio desk crits are times when some of the most exciting, mind-blowing conversations take place. Our professor sits with each of us individually to discuss our project, probes our thesis with difficult questions, and helps us push forward to make more potent design arguments (this happens every MWF, when there is no pinup or presentation).
The only thing I regret is that I never recorded any of these incredible conversations. My classmates share the same sentiment.
Our professor drew these notes during a recent desk crit. I believe this was a prescription of what to do next. But without an audio recording, it's hard to remember what actually happened, what this means, and whether this should be read in plan, section, or axo.
This is a journal of my adventures at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP) as I pursue my M.Arch degree. It includes images of my projects, classmates' work, some thoughts, and grad-student daily life.
