Led by Los Angeles educator and designer Peter Zellner, the studio has recently received several local as well as international awards and is currently at work on projects in North America, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/115658769/suspects-in-the-studio "Suspects" in the Studio Derek Ham 2014-12-10T15:40:00-05:00 >2014-12-11T14:39:13-05:00 <p>The recent cases involving Mike Brown in Ferguson and Garner in New York all continue to illuminate how many people view Blacks (and especially Black men) in America. Architecture schools cannot avoid this discussion as many schools still have staggering low numbers of Black and other underrepresented minority students in their programs. I want to help us talk about these issues as we continue to try making our learning environments (the design studio) welcoming for people of all walks of life.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/115420285/the-dirty-south-new-orleans The Dirty South - New Orleans Splishka 2014-12-09T11:15:00-05:00 >2014-12-09T11:15:12-05:00 <p>The second installation of The Dirty South studio with Jennifer Bonner at Georgia Tech takes on New Orleans. Using the legacy of Dirty South hip hop as inspiration within the framework of a guidebook of B-side tours, students investigated unusual patterns and idiosyncrasies in the city. Projects spanned topics from misuse of Charles Moore's Piazza d'Italia to reappropriation of the city's most controversial monuments to installation of an illegal auction house within the convention center.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/115005403/the-university-of-tokyo-advanced-design-studies-t_ads The University of Tokyo: Advanced Design Studies (T_ADS) Tokyo University T_ADS 2014-12-02T03:56:00-05:00 >2014-12-02T20:16:15-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/fz/fzv3tjokhaodctxe.jpg" width="514" height="356" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Founded in 2014, T_ADS was established to contribute and enhance the state-of-the-art architectural design education, and cultivate architectural culture in Japan.

Pon Kumaresh 2014-09-26T13:48:00-04:00 >2014-12-10T07:00:01-05:00 <p>This blog would attempt to cover basic design factors typically considered in lighting design. In 1998, i was asked about the material of the filament inside the incandescent bulb, for which i did not have a clue, at that time. I am an engineer and i have the aptitude to learn the subject is what i told the interviewer and surprisingly, got into the lighting industry! Perhaps it is that shameful ignorance that gave me a voracious appetite to proactively seek, learn and understand lighting.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/108160398/simply-architect Simply Architect NFucci 2014-09-04T09:04:00-04:00 >2014-12-13T07:00:02-05:00 <p>Follow Nick as he travels through the University of Hartford's Master of Architecture graduate program.

These graduate students come from different and diverse backgrounds, but have chosen to pursue architecture. Other topics will include certain happenings here at the school such as events and lectures in order to give you a sense of what it is like at the UMSOA. </p> http://archinect.com/blog/107174920/georgia-tech-hong-kong-studio-2014 Georgia Tech | Hong Kong Studio 2014 Hong Kong 2014 2014-08-22T14:18:00-04:00 >2014-11-21T07:00:02-05:00 <p>This integrated design studio will involve 11 M.Arch students working collaboratively to engage the current programme for the Hong Kong Performing Arts Academy and the Hong Kong Art Center, and research and design a major new initiative that serves as a counter-balance to the West Kowloon Cultural District institutions. There is an opportunity to diversify the geography of Hong Kong&rsquo;s first tier arts venues while exploring questions of identity, civic presence, and architectural language. </p> http://archinect.com/blog/106818911/provocations Provocations Irma Acosta 2014-08-17T23:21:00-04:00 >2014-08-18T17:10:44-04:00 <p>This blog's primary focus will be my exploration of disrupting architectural constructs. My journey will be inspired by explorations within my surroundings, which will include but not limited to road trips, festivals, exhibition, etc. I will questions and provoke thought within architectural discourse, education, profession, and design. Topics will range from Historic Preservation, to emerging technologies, design projects, and the list continues to anything associated to architecture.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/105870630/judson-architecture-alumni-connection Judson Architecture Alumni Connection CNaylor 2014-08-05T16:10:00-04:00 >2014-08-16T12:21:13-04:00 <p>Connecting current students to Alumni and firms so graduating seniors and grad students have connections when looking for jobs.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/105832020/the-experimental-architecture-photo-lab THE ExPERIMENTAL ARCHITECTURE PHOTO LAB sangsuri chun 2014-08-05T04:07:00-04:00 >2014-08-08T19:03:27-04:00 <p>This is an architecture photo blog with images from all over the world of grand architectures.

Globally, more people live in cities than do not. The 'Future Cities', those bucolic heterotopias we were promised, are not here. Instead, we are growing into a world where shelter, environmental justice, clean drinking water, &amp; other basic human rights are negotiated for. How do we, as architects, plan to address those needs? This blog will explore answers to those questions.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/103616436/navigating-graduate-school Navigating Graduate School WanderLust 2014-07-07T08:50:00-04:00 >2014-07-07T16:25:24-04:00 <p>The journey of a 23 year old international student to the other side of the world and through living the dream at the YSOA.

Posts will explore the program, New York's architecture and urban design and has the potential to envelope the west coast as well. Having spent the last 6 years in L.A., my intended thesis will look at the the west coast (and hopefully the school will give me the objective distance I need!). </p> http://archinect.com/blog/102479978/lost-at-sea Lost at SEA Evan Chakroff 2014-06-22T14:49:00-04:00 >2014-12-04T07:00:01-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/r9/r9m7eh86l3k7mz0m.jpg" width="514" height="391" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Returning to the US after years of work and travel abroad, Evan Chakroff attempts to bring a global perspective to analysis of the relatively-unknown architectural traditions of his new home, Seattle, Washington. </p> http://archinect.com/blog/102044320/understanding-the-ordinary Understanding The Ordinary. Parker Ammann 2014-06-16T22:38:00-04:00 >2014-06-17T11:32:54-04:00 <p>I like to look for excitement in the ordinary, everyday, and seemingly benign. People are constantly impacted by architecture, even if it is not some extraordinarily designed space. I am currently in Architecture School at Cal Poly Pomona and, although Pomona might not be one of the most architecturally fascinating places, I find myself affected by the buildings around me. In this blog I want to discuss how seemingly benign architecture has positively and negatively affected me.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/101400134/bridge-waterloo-architecture Bridge Waterloo Architecture Connor O'Grady 2014-06-08T14:07:00-04:00 >2014-06-13T01:41:59-04:00 <p>A portal to waterlooarchitecture.com, an aggregator of student work as well as student life in Cambridge, Ontario.

I think we can appreciate details. This will help us understand the issues concerning everyday worldly problems, just by changing the scale of perspective. </p>
