    With the switch of Cal Poly Pomona's architecture department chair in 2013, the curriculum has undergone a handful of drastic changes, including the senior project format. Rather than providing merely a 10-week quarter to design and produce a project, fifth years received the summer to do extensive research, one quarter for programming, and one quarter for detailed design. Students were placed in one of four categories which best fit their program: housing, sustainability, institutional buildings, and material studies. During spring quarter, consultants (structural, mechanical, etc.) looked over student projects for approval, and--as per usual--a number of students received warning letters regarding the incompleteness of their projects.

    Despite this, some of the most thought-provoking projects were on display at the City Market in downtown Los Angeles.
