    Iceland

    I've been in Reykjavik for almost a week now. I went to Iceland Academy of the Arts last Wednesday to meet with the Dean of Architecture + Design, Jóhannes. I am going on a tour of design firms for tuesday + wednesday, to discuss their history, influences, education, process, etc. It should be a good resource for my thesis/research.

    Photographs of the city are here

    I leave on Friday for a trip around the Ring Road. Stykkisholmur on Friday and Roni Horn's Library of Water on Saturday, then Akureyi, Myvatn, and continuing around the island.

    Tuesday a week from tomorrow I head to Stockholm. Going to Woodland Chapel, the library, and a multitude of other lovely buildings.

    Proud to say that I was one of the Honorable mentions for the Live Forever Competition....

    Still doing various competitions with C U P, including MJ and the recent Advertisement for Architecture which will be exhibited in Australia.

      Couldn't get your photos link to work. Iceland is a beautiful place and glad that it's becoming more mainstream than in was on my first visit in the late 90's.

      Is it still oppressively expensive there? After their financial turmoil last year one would think there has been some consumer price deflation.
