In fact, some students know this but it is a best kept secret so they can stand back and watch the divine comedy folding out on the first rows of their presentation. Not all students take criticism personally although it is hard not to.</p> <p> Most architecture schools are the continuation of the traditional model, design studios taught by people who are, if you say so, spatial experts. In general, architecture education is defined by how to draw and produce space. Most people in the world can say something about buildings. Naturally, architects use a unique vocabulary to control and develop their craft.</p> <p> I was asked if I would write a piece on architectural juries. After thinking about it for a few hours I came up with this idea of subjectively stereotyping the people who sit in front of the presentations and say 'wise' things about student projects. I hope this will help the audience and...</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/2148211/5-projects-interview-1-mark-talbot 5 Projects: Interview 1 - Mark Talbot Alex Maymind 2011-04-07T22:18:00-04:00 >2014-11-12T10:12:17-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/29/29i3n6t6xlutce86.jpg" width="514" height="168" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><strong>5 (student) Projects:</strong> is a group of projects completed at Yale University's School of Architecture by 5 young architects during their graduate education. Each of the 5 projects are sited in New Haven on or adjacent to Yale's campus. Each project focused on an institutional building, loosely defined by program, type and context. These commonalities became a framework for discussion that illuminated individual polemics and debate about experimentation in today's architectural landscape. Despite the initial appearance of diversity within the set, each architect sought to address a common set of ideas emerging at Yale and perhaps within the discourse of architecture at large. Primarily addressing the legacy of Postmodernism (in its various guises and forms), each sought an architecture that engaged historical memory, local context and an renewed concern for communication and legibility. Each was interested in an operable or speculative way to use history and its associated culturally es...</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/2137405/a-conversation-with-michael-woo A Conversation with Michael Woo Orhan Ayyüce 2011-04-07T20:02:59-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ad/adwm03e0blue59ge.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><i>By Orhan Ayy&uuml;ce</i> &nbsp; <p> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Woo" target="_blank">Michael Woo</a> is the dean of California Polytechnic University, Pomona the College of Environmental Design which contains departments of&nbsp;Architecture, Art, Landscape Architecture, Urban and Regional Planning, and the John T. Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies. He is a familiar name in Southern California. Mr. Woo has served in Los Angeles City Council and ran for the mayor's office in 1993 as the Democratic candidate, losing by a small margin to Republican candidate and businessman Richard Riordan. A planner by education, Mr. Woo is a unique dean for a design school with the background of an established politician and, to a degree, an environmental activist. I sat down with him last December in his office and had this conversation.</p>
