    Winter 2014 Lecture Series

    This quarter Cal Poly Pomona's lecture series consisted of four diverse individuals from the architecture community. In the past, presenters sometimes adhered to a specific theme (i.e. sustainability, representation through drawing, etc.), but within the past three months, our guests each had something different to talk about.

    The series began with Cal Poly's very own M. ARCH student Courtney Embry, winner of the LT Shanks Travelling Scholarship. She shared her insight on housing in Tel Aviv, her chosen location for her research topic. 

    We also had the pleasure of having Alvin Huang of Synthesis Design. If this quarter's theme is diversity, then Huang undoubtedly fit in perfectly, for he not only discussed full-scale buildings, but smaller pavilions and furniture as well.

    The architecture department collaborated with the Department of Landscape Architecture for a presentation by graypants, a Seattle-based company that focuses on product design, in addition to architecture. 

    The quarter ended with Peter Testa of Testa & Weiser. He focused on the topic of isotropy vs. anisotropy, specifically in envelope design, but he seemed to have wowed the students with Factor(e), an ongoing project for electric vehicle design.

Initially, I was going to name this blog "Architecture Will Kill You", but I thought better of it. Welcome to my five-year journey in undergraduate architecture school.
