In its third year, Blue Tape presentations with spirited review sessions were engaging and most of the discourse was high quality. While my snapshots of rapid curating after a long day of jury duty are not the perfect representation of the work done in the school, they might give you a chance to peek into cross section of this years projects.</p> <p> <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/87051047@N00/sets/72157629674358890/show/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Slides</a></p> <p> Related:<br><a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/103197/usc-the-world-is-yours" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Blue Tape 2010</a></p> <p> <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/5980632/shine-shrine-usc" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Blue Tape 2011</a></p> http://archinect.com/news/article/41291960/can-usc-grow-without-devouring-the-neighborhood Can USC Grow without Devouring the Neighborhood?

These two day marathon review sessions bring together nearly half of the architecture faculty from all five accredited architecture schools of Los Angeles and &nbsp;from other states.<br> Last year, on the top floors of a downtown hi-rise the <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/103197/usc-the-world-is-yours" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">"World was theirs"</a>, this year, students came down to Shrine Auditorium and got their Academy Awards before going into one long summer hopefully reading, writing, thinking about architecture and nurturing their ideals. I want to thank Stefano De Martino of M.Arch Program for inviting me.&nbsp;Once more,&nbsp;while critiquing projects and switching from one jury to the other,&nbsp;I pointed and shot these pictures&nbsp;for everybody to view and see what the students are producing in USC. All "hot" new styles were beautifully represented like other top schools in the world and commentary from the critics were often wise.&nbsp;</p> <p> <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/87051047@N00/sets/72157626695061762/show/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Slideshow</a></p> http://archinect.com/news/article/103197/usc-the-world-is-yours USC: the World Is Yours Orhan Ayyüce 2010-12-14T15:03:00-05:00 >2013-12-15T14:31:09-05:00 <p> <img alt="image" name="image" src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_121410_140138.jpg"><br><br> Yesterday's <a href="http://arch.usc.edu/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">USC</a> school wide final reviews meant to be a spectacle for the architecture community and the students and it was. The views from 50 &amp; 51st floors of a downtown Los Angeles building were pleasantly distracting and breathtaking. The endless loop of student projects, varied from conceptual to practical, from small to large and extra large, reflecting the variety of faculty, students and the ideas. Well done. <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/87051047@N00/sets/72157625598292142/show/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">slides</a></p>
