    1:30AM and no work to do.  Free time!  I'm gonna catch up on everything really quickly. First project of the quarter was an exercise in creating specific spacial conditions, namely threshold, enclosure, vantage, movement, stasis, relationships and memory.  Although we had to use...

    I meant to put a little wrap up post on here as soon as the term ended, but I've been asleep since then.   Anyway... the first term of architecture school.... it had many ups and many downs, but even the downs turned out being awesome.  Regardless of being in studio almost 18 hours a...

    So we are currently on winter break after our first term at Drexel, and I think the biggest thing to figure out is, what to do without studio work!??!?! First off, lots of sleep, been catching up for the past few days and it is by far the best thing about break so far, didn't think I could miss... View full entry

    We have successfully lived through our first term in the Architecture 2 + 4 program at Drexel, and it definitely was not an easy feat. Many late nights filled with tedious amounts of work, but also a lot of fun along the way. The shock when we got here was overwhelming and we did not know what to... View full entry

    Holla! I'm Jacob, Jake was gracious enough to invite me to join him and Erik on their quest to document the triumphs and trials we're battling through here at the studio.

    First off, my names Erik Mangano, I'm also a freshmen in the 2 + 4 Architecture program at Drexel along with Jake and Jacob. I'm going to guess Jake left off at the crits for living cubes, which were very interesting, but it was a very good first project. The final project we are preparing for... View full entry

    Since I obviously can't fill this with content nearly enough, I have enlisted help from two studio-mates, Erik Mangano and Jacob Gulezian.  I have not a clue what they will post, but I'm sure it will be great!  Hopefully they'll fill in the one month gap that has been filled mostly with...

  • Three Weeks Later

    Nov 4, '11 7:42 PM EST

    Well... this blog fell apart quickly against my will.  The last three weeks have been very strenuous.  My work load has been increasing in my other non-arch classes which takes up the time I used to write here.  On top of that, I got a pretty bad concussion two weeks ago which led...

    Well, I've been too busy to post for the last week and however many days.  Because of that, I have way too many photos and examples of work to put up here.  We've done a whole lot of axonometric drawing, sketching, modeling, playing, eating, etc.  On Friday our midterm project is...

    Alright, so it's been a while.  I have a three full assignments to go through here.  But first some personal stuff I guess.  Architecture school is time consuming.  So much more time consuming than I ever expected.  Last weekend I decided to take off Friday and Saturday... View full entry
