One photo shows the three different elevations down in the site, 2 of which being alleys to serve the bars/restaurants/stores that are there. we have to leave thos intact and build catwalks for people to acess the upper Bay street. We are supposed to follow local historic code, but are allowed to stretch the rules here and there if we have a good reason to. all in all I thin kthis is a really interesting project, with a scope only limited by us. The professor has basically said we can stick to just our site or we could go as far as to redo the riverfront, or even more than that. basically the program is just ...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21449479/finally-have-a-few-pictures finally have a few pictures joe 2004-09-25T20:50:44-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>well I got a little time so I figured I'd post up some images.<br><br> I guess I'll start with the labs/classroom/studio pics. pretty self explanatory<br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_lab.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_lab2.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_corridor.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_class.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_class2.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_post_up.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_video_computer.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_studio.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_studio2.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_studio3.jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br> These pictures were all on the third floor of the building.

The architecture program is a 4 year bfa in arch., with a 5 year M.arch. As a whole the program is well rounded with some really interesting professors. The professors are a really great thing about the program. Most of them go out of the way to help you in any way possible, but moreso some are down to earth and on our level rather than acting like an elitist. I'd say the student to instructor relationship is very good. speaking of professors we hired a couple Yale alums over the summer. I'm taking one now and have been impressed with the level of dedica...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21449426/ok-ok-ok-soon ok ok ok... soon joe 2004-09-15T16:54:25-04:00 >2011-09-23T13:01:01-04:00 <p>well school started up today. just had one class today and the other two on tues and thursdays. Taking environmental control II, urban design studio/studio IV, and 20th century arch.<br> should keep me busy at least. I'll post back with the results of our studio lottery, and some descriptions of them. we have a few new professors this year, should be interesting-anxious to hear about their projects. I'll bring my camera and take pictures of the building too, didnt have a chance today.<br> It's nice having all the friends back in town too. a bunch of us got together for dinner last night, back to the routine I suppose. I'm so glad though.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21449336/evacuate Evacuate! joe 2004-09-02T23:24:30-04:00 >2011-09-23T13:01:01-04:00 <p>well not really, or yet I should say. This being my first entry I'll keep it short and simple so I can edit it and learn the whole deal of this. Hurricane Francis is bearing down on florida and is expected to bring heavy rains, etc up my way in savannah, so I guess my going home for a week vacation before school is perfect timing. I'm just busy cleaning house right now, throwing stuf away trying to get everything organized for when I come back. well I guess thats it, less than two weeks left of summer and I cant wait till school starts, bring it on. this summer has lagged forever and I'm anxious to get my brain back in gear.<br> cheerio - joe</p>
