In their first course, Media 1: Visual Thinking and Communication, they will begin to explore the concept of expressing themselves through visual narrative and analysis. </p> Georgia Tech | Hong Kong Studio 2014 Hong Kong 2014 2014-08-22T14:18:00-04:00 >2014-08-27T13:43:45-04:00 <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> 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> 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> 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> 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> Lost at SEA Evan Chakroff 2014-06-22T14:49:00-04:00 >2014-08-20T08:00:01-04:00 <img src="" 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> 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> Bridge Waterloo Architecture Connor O'Grady 2014-06-08T14:07:00-04:00 >2014-06-13T01:41:59-04:00 <p>A portal to, an aggregator of student work as well as student life in Cambridge, Ontario.

However, I am also interested in blogging about other discussions. This blog will allow me to discuss the work of students with archinect.</p> Architecture in Detail Ali Turan 2014-05-16T12:24:00-04:00 >2014-05-16T17:19:28-04:00 <p>I appreciate the finer things in life, as the cliche goes, but I think there is a reason why it is a cliche. 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> University of Pennsylvania (Ricardo) Ricardo Hernandez-Perez 2014-05-15T22:25:00-04:00 >2014-08-19T08:00:04-04:00 <p>M.Arch.I program at PennDesign, Meyerson life, experiences in Philadelphia, trips, course work, studio work, sightings, students, faculty, events, exhibitions, lectures, crits, reviews, and everything in between.</p> Parametric architecture and Architecture design process in 3D model Marko Stojkovic 2014-05-11T10:46:00-04:00 >2014-05-12T08:29:07-04:00 <p>I would like to write about parametric architecture design process (Rhino, Grasshopper) and design process directly from 3D software (3ds max). The goal is to show how fast you can make final result from 3D software not touching plan drawings. The blog will also show basic information how to make final render and some postproduction technique in photoshop. I am planning in the future to write about applying L-system mathematics in architecture design.</p> Thoughts from Down Under Samantha Winterland 2014-05-10T09:28:00-04:00 >2014-08-14T08:00:01-04:00 <img src="" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>This blog will focus mainly on Australian architecture: how it has evolved over the years, the latest trends and most ambitious projects. I also plan to highlight new green policies implemented Down Under and how they affect local architecture. I hope to receive feedback from readers and engage them in discussions.</p> AA Visiting School Jordan Kais Al-Rawi 2014-04-29T02:04:00-04:00 >2014-08-27T08:00:01-04:00 <p>This blog will be about the AA visiting school workshop in Jordan.

Most graduates struggle because there is no manual on what to do after graduation and it can be an overwhelming experience. I write about how to prepare resumes &amp; portfolios, networking, application strategies, firm selection, job interviews, softwares etc. Note: some articles are re-posted (with permission) from and I credit them at the bottom of those posts.</p> The Death of Drawing David Scheer 2014-04-21T15:38:00-04:00 >2014-04-23T11:46:19-04:00 <p>This blog addresses the revolution in architectural knowledge currently taking place. The 500-year-old tradition of architectural drawing is being displaced by simulation with the advent of building information modeling and computational design. This has dramatic consequences for how architects think and the place of our work in society.</p> recreating creativity sha sulaiman 2014-04-10T10:35:00-04:00 >2014-08-13T08:00:01-04:00 <p>This blog would be taken as the public blog for the students of architecture in and out of rvs school of architecture , so we would like to get your presentations and projects shared , we would also like to get feedbacks on project of students simultaneously , so feel free to join , share and update , each and every inspirations you go through being a student of architecture , may this blog help us being within a tree of conversation and develop new contacts within our students circle</p> Studio 19 Rory 2014-04-06T02:57:00-04:00 >2014-08-30T08:00:03-04:00 <p>Studio 19 is a collaboration between UNITEC and Strachan Group Architects (SGA).
