    The semester has finally gotten on its way and it promises to be a pretty difficult one. It is the last one in the core series without not much room for choice and packed full of fun classes like structures, pro-practice, and environmental technologies (ET). Thankfully as an AP from UF I was able to get out of ET, it seems like a good class but the semester is packed enough as it is, and I am replacing it with a Rafael Moneo theory course 'On Contemporary Architecture'. Finally we cannot forget the main entree, by now long-held tradition, and cap-off to the core studios: the housing semester.

      Are you guys reading Rafael Moneo's book 'Theoretical Anxiety and Design Strategies'? I'm reading it now, it's really good. Though its written like a lecture with a slide show so I imagine you could just skip the book and listen to him talk.

      I've read the book before. More than once, actually.

      northern-most option could be interesting due to the dead intersection caused by the entry ramp to Storrow Drive on Boylston. the mid one along JP pond is primarily residential housing I think, maybe some smaller apartment buildings so the option of messing with the existing fabric comes up. not too familiar with the southern option.
