In the last few weeks we've seen (and heard) the rebar going into the ground floor before pouring the slab, back-filling the south east corner and now the recently erected steel. It's easy to forget that the steel is being constructed off site, until of course, you see it snap into place. <br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_milstein_hall_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br> a visit to the OMA website will present you this image<br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC04005_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_Untitled_Panorama1_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC04026_400e.jpg" alt="image" name="image"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453573/when-the-wall-comes-down When the Wall Comes Down ryan trinidade 2010-04-29T00:11:35-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03992_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br> With all the investment we put into representations of space, sometimes we forget that we are also <i>makers</i> of space - specifically the space around us. Recently, someone had the brilliant idea to project last nights Lakers/Thunder game in studio. A projector was signed out, some old plots re-purposed and until then; a partition wall separated the two second year studios. Sometimes the best architecture happens when we don't expect it. <br><br> Lakers - 111 / Thunder - 87 http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453553/structures-bloody-structures Structures Bloody Structures ryan trinidade 2010-04-17T23:45:30-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>Among the many traditions there are in the architecture program, there is one that tests your faith in architecture, life, the universe and everything; the Structures III final model. Every spring second year m.arch and third year b.arch students spend weeks meticulous making what is described as 'the best model you might ever make.' What is certain - you will loose a lot of sleep, spend too much money and get cut or burned at least once. <br> I still have bits of metal shrapnel in my fingers.<br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03812_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03814_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03815_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03823_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03860_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03868_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03870_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03873_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03898_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03900_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03904_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03917_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453545/cornell-in-bloom Cornell in Bloom ryan trinidade 2010-04-08T19:08:29-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>After a long winter, it's easy to appreciate a breezy spring morning.<br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03684_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03688_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03699_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03720_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453509/relapse-residue Relapse & Residue ryan trinidade 2010-03-20T14:58:56-04:00 >2011-09-23T13:01:19-04:00 <p>I've been neglecting this blog, until a friend inspired me to post again, so I will resume posting in some form or another as long as I can. <br><br> It's spring break at Cornell now, so I'll spend some time catching up on documenting some of the stories that took place in the last couple of months as well as current happenings. <br><br> I'll start with some pictures of the aftermath of last semester; <br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03011_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03030_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03033_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03034_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03035_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC03036_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_rich_desk_400px.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br> You would be surprised how difficult it is to take a picture or Richie's desk without him sitting at it. </p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453291/shigeru-visits-ithaca Shigeru visits Ithaca ryan trinidade 2009-10-08T20:33:25-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_DSC02974_400b.jpg" alt="image" name="image"> inspiring, unpretentious, succinct, witty http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453290/paul-needs-to-put-more-work-on-his-wall Paul needs to put more work on his wall ... ryan trinidade 2009-10-08T20:24:04-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_studio_091007_400.jpg" alt="image" name="image"> typical desk crit atmosphere http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453237/what-s-going-on-here What's going on here? ryan trinidade 2009-09-19T14:08:18-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>Walking through the arts quad earlier this week I stumbled upon this.

I constantly find myself frantically moving from building to building, school to home, and in between planing my next move, no time to breath. Today while (briskly) walking through the arts quad, I wondered why I was in such a hurry, and was almost pulled to this little patio/cafe at Goldwin Smith Hall. And there I diagram'd. <br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_ONEb.jpg" alt="image" name="image"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453203/and-here-we-go And here we go ryan trinidade 2009-09-02T21:30:55-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_love_to_thee.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><br> Playing a little catch up now (isn't that how it always goes?). It took a while to settle into this blog and Ithaca. I moved stateside a little over two weeks ago, the first week was unpacking and administration errands. <i>A lot</i> of planning and coordination goes into the first week; equivalency, course selections, supplies, meetings and of course nightly social meet ups with the incoming class. <br><br> Last week marked the begin of about a week of orientations and informal gatherings. Cornell University, the Graduate School, the Faculty of Architecture, Art and Planing (AAP) as well as the School of Architecture each put on quite a show to welcome the matriculated class. <br><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_millerheller_1.jpg" alt="image" name="image"> Miller Heller House<br><br> The most personal orientation was, of course, from the school of architecture. Beginning with introductions and inspiring words from new chair Dagmar Richter and director of graduate studies Mark Morris, we were soon acquainted with our new professors. The evening concluded with a BBQ at the Miller H...
