    THE DESIRE 1. A students desire to begin studying architecture tends to sprout from the need for artistic expression. 2. The heartbreak of running into the world of codes, structure, and politics is hard for a student to deal with. 3. Most students who can not handle the shock REVERT to the world... View full entry

    Here are some newer images for the school located on 2nd and Western in L.A. You can see the large moving screen on the facade and the stationary, screen to the rear of the building.

    Our project this quarter is an urban elementary school in L.A. that consists of 32 classrooms, admin, multi-purpose, gym, cafeteria, and library.

    THE PROBLEM: Highland Park is a low-income neighborhood located just North of downtown L.A. The city has chosen to become a Transit Oriented District.

    Mid-reviews are very helpful to see how critics will react to your project and can help show you any significant flaws in your design. However, we just had a second review with only 1 1/2 weeks left. Also consider that we're on the quarter system and only have 9 weeks in studio and 2 1/2 we're... View full entry

    FYI We recently had a lecture from Ted Smith and he criticized the current model of multi-family housing, which seems to be "4-OVERS" (4 levels of housing over 1 level of parking).

    We just finished a charrette that consisted of designing 4 housing units on a somewhat small site.
