For that I apologize. Let me take this opportunity to summarize how awesome the semester has been.</p> <p> <strong>Karamba 3d: </strong>It all started back in January when Justin Diles, our LeFevre Fellow brought Clemens Preisinger to lead a 5 day workshop for M. Arch students in his Karamba 3D program. Karamba3d is a finite element analysis program which works with Rhino and Grasshopper,&nbsp; tailored to the needs of architects.&nbsp; The M. ARCH students learned to use parametric geometric modeling, finite element calculations and optimization algorithms to create intricate structural scenarios for figural building massings.</p> <p> Prototypes resulting from the workshop were reviewed by KSA professors Jeff Kipnis and Jos&eacute; Oubrerie and renowned structural engineer Klaus Bollinger prior to his Baumer lecture on Wednesday, January 16th. Bollinger is director of the structural engineering firm Bollinger-Grohmann....</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/60870175/things-to-be-thankful-for Things to be thankful for... adbelson 2012-11-06T23:10:56-05:00 >2012-11-12T11:22:41-05:00 <p> November kicks off the month we all associate with giving thanks. Here at the Knowlton School of Architecture we have a lot to be thankful for. We have the resources and funding of a large university but the intimate community and support of a small college.</p> <p> Tomorrow, Nov. 7th, Knowlton welcomes the internationally renowned architectural firm BIG's Kai-Uwe Bergmann. Tomorrow, Bergmann gives a lecture entitled Hedonistic Sustainability. Kai-Uwe Bergmann is Partner, Business Development of BIG, Bjarke Ingels Group based in Copenhagen.</p> <p> All lectures are free and open to the public. The lecture will be held at Knowlton Hall, room 250 at 5:30pm on Wednesday.</p> <p> For more information visit: <a href="http://knowlton.osu.edu/event/kai-uwe-bergmann-big" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://knowlton.osu.edu/event/kai-uwe-bergmann-big</a></p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/65/655rr79r91ydcoyk.jpg" title=""></p> <p> Additionally, next week Peter Eisenman and Jeffrey Kipnis will be discussing their Venice Biennale and Field of Dreams exhibit.

Ohio Stadium</strong></p> <p> If you are from Columbus you know how much presence Ohio State Football has during fall. Even if you are not a buckeye through school, like participating in St. Patrick's day, during Fall Saturdays in Columbus, everyone is a buckeye.</p> <p> Have you ever wondered about the place where the magic happens? I am referring to the Ohio Stadium.</p> <p> Starting this week, in the Banvard Gallery at Knowlton Hall, there is an exhibition about the conception and creation of Ohio Stadium. Football fans and Architectural Fans alike should come to this exhibit! It is free to the public and students and open from 9-5 Monday through Friday.</p> <p> Here is part of the abstract about the exhibit:</p> <p> The year 2012 marks the 90th anniversary of Ohio Stadium, one of the country's most innovative structures when it was built in 1922. The year 2012 also marks the 200th anniversary of the founding of Columbus, Ohio. Together, these two milestones provide an important opportunity to tell the sto...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/41273888/graduate-student-open-house Graduate Student Open House! adbelson 2012-03-13T12:14:25-04:00 >2012-03-13T13:37:23-04:00 <p> Hello All,</p> <p> The Knowlton School of Architecture will be opening its doors on Monday April 2nd to Welcome all accepted graduate students.<img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/wr/wrp52t5864cp7ccj.jpg" title=""></p> <p> The Tentative Program looks like this:</p> <p> 9:30-10:30AM&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Optional building tour for attendees</p> <p> 10:30AM&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Welcoming comments by Mike Cadwell and Section Heads</p> <p> 10:45AM-Noon&nbsp;&nbsp; Section Breakout Sessions; Graduate Program Chairs</p> <p> Noon-1:30PM&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Lunch with KSA Students</p> <p> 1:30-2:30PM&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Studio Visits: For Architecture and Landscape Architecture attendees, hosted by Graduate Student Council members</p> <p> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 4th Floor Visit (CRP spaces, computer labs): For CRP attendees</p> <p> 2:30PM&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Campus Tour (including the Wexner Center)</p> <p> For more information please visit our website: <a href="http://knowlton.osu.edu/event/ksa-graduate-open-house" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">www.knowlton.osu.edu</a></p> <p> You can RSVP online.</p> <p> Please Join us!!</p> <p> &nbsp;</p>... http://archinect.com/blog/article/34267954/new-quarter-new-year-new-resolutions New Quarter, New Year, New Resolutions adbelson 2012-01-12T15:38:00-05:00 >2012-01-15T12:02:40-05:00 <p> We welcome in the new year with a new quarter!</p> <p> So many things are happening here in Columbus and at the Knowlton School of Architecture.</p> <p> To start it off, Columbus is having its bicentennial this year and are sponsoring many activities for the public to get involved.

Knowlton Architecture faculty, Bart Overly and Jaime Green spoke regarding "a Moment in Time".&nbsp; I found these presentations very interesting especially since I have Bart Overly this quarter for a Habitat Studio.
