    Studio Selection

    By Hasselhoff

    Results for studio selection were posted today. I got my number 5 (out of 6) choice. Based on the written and oral brief, I have no idea what we are going to be doing other than redesigning Meyerson Hall. His brief was so riddled with archibabble, that it's unreadable.

    Objective:
    To provide a pedagogical framework for the gestation and significant development of a generative architectural design imbued in the complexity of program, tectonics, context, and urban ontology.

    I have no idea what that means. But I do see "generative" and that's why he was #5 on my list. I'm terrified. We all know if studio sucks, then life sucks. I will try to remain positive, but I'm not looking forward to it. Although, one of my favorite studio people is in my group again, which is cool.

      Sorry to hear you scored so low on studio choice, Hasselhoff. Have fun redesigning Meyerson - please do something drastic. Good luck.

      PS That objective sentence is pretty nonsensical IMO.

      the late great finnish architect reima peitala once used an outline drawing of his cat as inspiration for one of his buildings. i suggest hasselhoff that you skip the hassle and do the same. i suggest outlining this-

      I did, in fact, Photoshop Meyerson Hall on top of a cat last semester. We were supposed to propose the integration of a living building system with a conventional system. I showed it during a Powerpoint and my critic lost it. She laughed so hard. After final review I revealed to her how I completely followed through with my design idea. My building was supported by columns that were also aquariums. So, if you are what you eat, then a cat eats fish, and it's legs have fish in them. My building's 'legs' had fish in them. She didn't really buy it, but laughed.
