    and most important of all: thanks to all who take the time to vote - you rock!

    In the seminar by Jeannie Kim "Architects and their books" we were encouraged to write a personal list of ten books that we thought every architect should own and have on her/his shelf. So here is my go at it, I would be delighted if any of you would post their favourites. But please consider that... View full entry

    ...and the confusion is great: For the first time here I was encouraged to work just as I did at my old school back in germany, that is: Forget about the site (we were not even given one yet), make some diagrams of your concept and develop the form and the rest after that. I was totally... View full entry

    As the images on this blog can only be small and I want to keep the archinect blog more centered on theoretical issues anyway I decided to post my images that I made for photography class only once and submitting here only the link. The other blog I keep is more object- and result-oriented than... View full entry

    The new semester is coming up and it started with the usual studio lottery. This time there were many interesting names with interesting proposals for studio topics or destinations for the Spring break Kinne trip but in my opinion in every proposal something was off.

    That sentence is one of the nicer quotes from an article about the power of selforganization in nature ("Emergence" by Steven Johnson). The article is a recommended reading for our class of generative components taught by Alisa Andrasek which will start next week. Until now the impression is that... View full entry

    After seeing that it MUST be possible to post images (well, others are doing it) I will try again. So here we go. If there is no image following in this post I think I'll have to live with the label of a DPU (dumbest possible user)... :-) The images shown were taken during a long and very... View full entry
