However, juries in architecture tend to function in a slightly different manner. They serve to structure and embody polemical tussles. Their existence produces a framework for intellectual progress, conversation, and questions, at times even subtle answers. Pupils present their work, questions, answers, some known and some unknown to the pupil themselves, to the jury. The role of juries may not be so much to pass a verdict but to pass on signs of light, paths towards knowledge and further questions.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150086811/archinectmeets-the_architecture_photographer #ArchinectMeets @the_architecture_photographer Shane Reiner-Roth 2018-10-12T11:00:00-04:00 >2018-10-09T13:54:01-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/2e/2e2d3f5db5a8d8fc07e8cfc50d5421a1.png?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p><a href="https://archinect.com/features/tag/1198457/archinectmeets" target="_blank">#ArchinectMeets</a> is a series of interviews with members of the architecture community that use Instagram as a creative medium.

What this book did in the context of the movie&rsquo;s fictional poetry scene was very different from a similar blank book, also titled&nbsp;<em>Nudisme&nbsp;</em>and&nbsp;styled in a similar way, that was recently on sale in fashionable Brooklyn shops.
