University of Southern California (USC), BArch, Archtiecture School

I transfer into the second year of a five a year program. Second year was small size projects. There was Boat house and Movie Theater with case studies and precedents studies. Third years was all about housing and leaning how structure comes together. There were three housing projects small, medium, and large. The last project was a semester long and ½ inch models were also part of the requirements. Fourth year was topic studios which were about the topic one would want to learn about. I took landscape studio with Andy Cao and a food truck with Jennifer Siegal (which are both practicing architects in Southern California). Firth year was Thesis project.
