    I've been in Reykjavik for almost a week now. I went to Iceland Academy of the Arts last Wednesday to meet with the Dean of Architecture + Design, Jóhannes. I am going on a tour of design firms for tuesday + wednesday, to discuss their history, influences, education, process, etc. It should be a good resource for my thesis/research.

    Photographs of the city are here

    I leave on Friday for a trip around the Ring Road. Stykkisholmur on Friday and Roni Horn's Library of Water on Saturday, then Akureyi, Myvatn, and continuing around the island.

    Tuesday a week from tomorrow I head to Stockholm. Going to Woodland Chapel, the library, and a multitude of other lovely buildings.

    Proud to say that I was one of the Honorable mentions for the Live Forever Competition....

    Still doing various competitions with C U P, including MJ and the recent Advertisement for Architecture which will be exhibited in Australia.
