    Current Events: Auburn is currently going through NAAB accreditation | Looking for a new Dean for the CADC Auburn College of Architecture, Design, & Construction

    I recently graduated from Hampton University on May 2010 with a Master of Architecture (5.5 yr format). Career plan A was sidelined by the majority of the rants I’ve read in the discussion forum, the economy. I luckily had some audibles I could call and career plan A was revamped to A 2.0. I applied to several Design Build or Hybrid of DB and ultimately decided on Auburn because the nature of the program focuses on issues of collaboration in the Building Industry, not just physical construction.

    Quick sketch of a door bell: I didnt include any kind of scale but the space is two stories high so you can imagine the form to be at its widest part about 16 feet tall. The space is a warehouse loft and the client wants a low profile piece againts the wall which "does something". We thought it... View full entry
