Another friend recently told me that architecture was your girlfriend(who you love) for the past four years that you just proposed to, but she said no. I'm not sure where I fall... View full entry

    Jeanne is probably one of the healthiest architects I've seen come out of OMA and do her own thing. I don't remember much of the lecture, but talking to her was a really refreshing experience. It was interesting having her lecture after Prince-Ramus(REX); definitely a good contrast. So lecture... View full entry

    Tzonis' lecture was on systems, analytic to heuristic to.... analogous and didactic. He spoke at length about processes, poetics vs poetry, and briefly about his case study, Calatrava.

    Hertzberger was probably the most famous architect to have come by while I've been in school. In relation to the previous lectures that have come through this year, I don't know if I can say it was worthwhile beyond the name. In the context of a lecture, that is. Talking to him in person earlier... View full entry
