Archinect - Columbia GSAP 2017-08-23T04:13:49-04:00 Student Lottery collins 2004-09-09T10:48:57-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>The school is starting to look alive and the coffee is already flowing. Yesterday was the all-school welcome, as well as the housing studio lottery - the choices are looking very good for us this semester, with Scott Marble, David Turnbull, Bob Marino, Michael Bell topping out my list. Will find out for sure today, after the draconian proccess of seeing who gets the lucky numbers.<br><br><img src=""><br><br> Attended a lecture by Manuel Delanda (teaching a class in the self-organization of cities) - I am reallly dissapointed I wont be able to find time for the class - very smart guy and very concrete with what he is saying (a rarity in the slippery world of theory!). Heres an image of the extreme amount of smoking the lecture induced.<br><br><img src=""><br><br><br></p> Enjoying the last few days of freedom in the city collins 2004-09-07T12:46:39-04:00 >2011-09-23T13:01:01-04:00 <p>So school is officially starting today, but, as usual it is off to a slow/sloppy start. Registration woes and student loan troubles (who can remember to fill out that fafsa form every year?)<br><br> tomorrow the studio lottery - all the choices look good, probably will angle for scott marble or david turnbull - but it all depends on my housing partner and our lottery number.<br><br> enjoyed some activity over the weekend, trying to get in some sunshine before going into pasty-face grad school mode - below is a shot from a small concert @ the Low library plaza<br><br><img src="" alt="outside"><br><br> and then relaxing on pier 45 in the view of richard meier's new apartment towers - definately the best maintained piece of grass in the city<br><br><img src="" alt="outside"><br></p>
