    Well its been a while, I kinda have been busy this first week...Good thing, I got all the classes I wanted except Tschumi' least his TA sent me a very nice generic "we liked ur essay" email. That was so sweet of her. Anyway, my classe are:

    Studio>>>Peter Cook
    Comp Crit Anal>>>Kenneth Frampton
    Mat pot>>>Alisa Andrasek
    Liv Arch>>>David Benjamin & Soo-in Yang (cool guys)

    I dont know why but I have a feeling this is going to be a very ROBOTIC / HAND MADE semester, we'll see...

    Aside from that we AAD are just begining to experience real Columbia. I mean summer was really DEAD, now the campus and specially Avery are FULL! but its good for us foreigners to get a feeling of big american university. One shitty thing is my studio space its all scattered, not concentrated as my summer class, but nothing is least I seat next to a window which looks down college walk and Columbia's well kept green GRass...

About this Blog

After 6 years working at a commercial firm in London and setting up my own practice with collegues from the AA to deliver a comission for a tower we won in India, I am embarking on a new adventure as studio leader for a local firm in China, trying to reconnect with the experimental mind set I used to have during my days at GSAPP
