Five years ago when I entered the Architecture school I never thought of just how big my thinking could be in thinking about society. By no means am I calling myself an anthropologist or anything of that nature, but I am caught in the especially prevalent ideology of the architecture student.
AIAS is an independent, nonprofit, student-run organization dedicated to providing unmatched programs, information, and resources on issues critical to architectural education. The mission of the AIAS is to promote excellence in architectural education, training, and practice; to foster an appreciation of architecture and related disciplines; to enrich communities in a spirit of collaboration; and to organize students and combine their efforts to to advance the art and science of architecture.
Initially, I was going to name this blog "Architecture Will Kill You", but I thought better of it. Welcome to my five-year journey in undergraduate architecture school.
After six years of marking off an endless list of classes, this is the end; or maybe not, since life changes unexpectedly. This is a blog about Senior Project: research, sketches, thoughts, and inspiration sources. it will be great if someone feels related to the fears, issues, but also the good outcomes that this year may bring.
Cal Poly Pomona architecture student.
First-year graduate student in the M.Arch program at Cal Poly Pomona. I have a background in philosophy with little to no studio experience. I'm here to document my three year experience at Cal Poly and hopefully provide answers to those with non-architecture backgrounds seeking to enroll in an architecture program all while showing the various non-traditional ways of engaging with the academic discipline and further exploring the intersection of theory and practice.
