    This last week, the current Howard E. LeFevre '29 Emerging Practitioner Fellow at the Knowlton School presented a lecture wherein he divulged the work that has formed his architectural career, including his own work from school, the work of his current students, and of most recent importance, the exhibition which he is working on putting together in the Banvard gallery here in the school. His work consistently presents an urge to shift the focus from the content to what it means to be a drawing, a rendering, a model, or more generally the problem of existing as any of these medium. The content itself works to reiterate this problem, throwing the process through a loop, requiring it to be reimagined each time it is redrawn, rerendered, or just snapshotted on a phone to send to a friend.

    This oscillation between scales and rendering techniques requires an elegant curatorial method to pull stills out as final products, though these things may be anything but as will be shown in the upcoming exhibit where there is a literal "cardboard architecture." This is not to discount the products as incomplete, but to further justify their positions within architectural dialogue.

    Without a doubt, the exhibit, set to open on the 24th of May will be an invigorating collection of objects, playful in their candor and impressive in their scale and scalar shifts.
