Third year students are given the opportunity to design and build, each group creating a one-to-one dinner pavilion, sited along the Ottawa river. <br><br> Many of the pavilions this year were characterized by round table settings, grilled entr&eacute;es, and fabric enclosed spaces. Moving screens created ephemeral surfaces and enclosure, journey narrated by a path of light, a black box unfolds to reveal a sensual wooden interior, an integral structure changes its persona over time, a parted cube pays homage to a great wall under the bridge, lilly pads travel and reflect along the mirror of water, saki amongst the tree tops, a homemade concrete bowl sculpted by earth and hay, roasted marshmallows, red fabric, views to the Ottawa river and the O-train were complimented by conversation + shisha under white swaying leaves. <br><br><img src="" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="" alt="image" name="image"><br><br><img src="" alt="image" name="image"><br><b>Canvas Hut</b><br> Photographs &copy; Paolo Milanes</p>... OPINIONS ANYONE? jmaw 2008-10-04T17:42:47-04:00 >2018-01-30T06:16:04-05:00 <p>How is it possible that <b>architecture students</b> no longer have opinions?<br><br> Is it because they don&rsquo;t have an opinion or is it because they have an opinion but are too afraid or too lazy to express their opinion? <br><br> I am sitting in class surrounded by intelligent people who, except for a small minority, <b>do not say anything ! ! !</b> Is it because they didn&rsquo;t make the time to read the &ldquo;required readings&rdquo; and therefore feel as if they could not possibly add anything to the conversation? <br><br> How is it possible to be &ldquo;in&rdquo; architecture &ldquo;in&rdquo; a conversation about architecture and not react or have an opinion about something that is being discussed in your presence? Even if you did not read the &ldquo;readings&rdquo; we are talking about architecture and you - sitting at the table - are also in architecture? <br><br> I am noticing lately that it is not only in this particular class but it seems to be a trend effecting the whole school. People have become comfortable. People don&rsquo;t fight for what they believe in anymore!

Our eyes abruptly aggravated by light weaving in and out, pulsating. A whistle blow s. passionate, moving towards the future, the steam engine speeds past . . . . <br><br><i>Le Moulin &agrave; Images</i> is a&nbsp;forty-minute sensorial journey through the history of Qu&eacute;bec. The production, the largest historic projection in the world, is set upon a monolithic stage measuring 600 meters in length, composed of 81 concrete grain silos, each 30 meters high, in the Port of Qu&eacute;bec City. Through waterways, the age of exploration and discovery; road building, clearing and developing the land; the railroad and industrial expansion; and finally, the age of air travel and the development of communications the observer is left with an impressionistic mosaic built upon 400 years of history + self discovery. <br><br><img src="" alt="image" name="image"><br><b>Robert Lepage and Ex Machina</b><br> June 20 - September 7, 2008.

I chose to return to Carleton for my Masters Degree because I have always felt that Carleton is 'my school'. the mess . the smells of spray paint, wet plaster and found objects. students who are possessed by passion and intuition. The building is the perfect apparatus for an architectural education and there is a strong sense of community between the students and their professors; one inspires the development of the other. I also chose to study at Carleton because there is the opportunity to study abroad for a semester. This year we will be living in Bern, Switzerland. <br><br><br> I love talking about architecture, thinking about architecture, and of course making architecture. I look forward to sharing + debating with you! <br><br><br><br> Jmaw
