    Boullee aint got shit on me. Image link goes to flickr page. The project dealt with a smokestack from the demolished juvenile delinquency hall about 3 miles from school, the program a theater with cinemascope. I chose to focus on the ritual of breaking into movies, and how to address this act of... View full entry

    studio work has been self-regulated. Lots of stuff going on, though. Joshua Prince-Ramus of REX-PC lectured here on Monday; he wasn't on the original lecture list. It was one of the better lectures(if a bit cynical) by an architect, most usually being lame from what I remember. Hertzberger is... View full entry

    The Alberto Perez-Gomez lecture was great; a lecture in the traditional sense. School is good, made some videos: Former is for studio, latter for the materials experimental class. First time doing 3d animations, it was easy but tedious. Working on orange leather/concrete? View full entry

    Dec 16, '07 2:30 PM EST I guess only two people have read this book entirely, one of them being Alvin Toffler, because the poor bastard had to write it. Classes are over, I got two more exams, one in history and structures. We had Roger Clark and Pat Rand on... View full entry

    Nov 20, '07 9:31 PM EST

    The lecture was a summary of the work presented within her book Enduring Innocence and a building/urbanism typology she has named "Zone." Zone as typology is the resulting architecture and urban conditions created in context of exploited free trade zones. Initially they start off as FTZ but mutate... View full entry

    We had our crit on the lake-house vignettes on Monday. The lasercutter was much more agreeable than it was the previous week, so models were built. Printers, however, weren't as agreeable. The entire critique was entertaining thanks to the reviewers, who were.... - Kenneth Hobgood(the funny one)... View full entry

    After the lecture were seminars, one day after the other. The first one was more or less a follow-up and clarification of the lecture. The whole discourse is greater than Rotterdam, but Rotterdam makes a great case study for how practice is changing. The second seminar was titled "Design... View full entry

    He didn't touch much on Rotterdam, but the lecture was haphazard and really stimulating. I've never seen the side of situationism that's kittie cats and little children. He's doing two workshops here today and tomorrow, hopefully there will be more structure than that in his lecture. View full entry

    I think this has become acceptable practice on my part. We switched past times with partners for our next vignette project; I'll have some photos of the final sometime later this week. Found a quote I like, by Rem no less. "Because it cannot be grasped, Junkspace cannot be remembered. It is... View full entry

    Our current studio project is dealing with analogy as a means of architecture, involving our favorite past times. "Wandering" is the theme, I'll have photos later. I want one of these:monome View full entry

    Premise of studio is developing the skill of analogy and plan-based composition. History with Clark isn't going to be as bad as I thought; ideation might be, however. If I only had a place to sleep? Sometimes I question why I'm in school, then I visit the other design departments. View full entry

    I haven't touched this part of Archinect in a while, mostly because of life and other projects. A lot has changed since I first entered school(two years ago). After some terrible professors, and two really great ones I kind of have an idea of what I want to be doing. Something humane, something... View full entry
