Interview with David Lake

| October 2nd, 2014

 

Full audio interview: David Lake Interview

 

What exactly did you see in China that you wanted to further engage the natural realm?

 

China is moving 1.2 million a month from rural China to urban China…largest migration of people in the history of the planet…their per capita of energy use is going up, but they are still using about six times less of energy per capita than we do…we are setting an awful example to the rest of the world…so I saw in China both the immediate capacity for us to be energetic and scientific and rigorous and sustainable, and on the other hand, this huge demand, the reality of a planet in peril…how is this going to be fixed?

Portfolios – The Final Product

| April 4th, 2013

New to this year is the portfolio workshop series, a joint venture sponsored by AIAS and NOMAS.  At the end of last fall semester, I presented the idea of creating a portfolio class.  Throughout my time as an architecture student, I have seen copious amounts of anxiety in my peers when it comes to the topic of portfolios, so I decided it was time our college needed a class.  I initially proposed to have a workshop every week, but we reduced it to a three part series to better “tease” the possibility of a future class and actually gauge how much interest there was in the topic.  After the impressive showing to the first workshop featuring Jennifer Bonner’s presentation on graphic design, it was obvious that students needed direction.

A Call to Confusion

| February 27th, 2013

?

You know what is awesome? Being part of a group, a community. Knowing the cues, the references, the conversational crutches (Did you go to the game this weekend? How’s the project going? Do you know if they are ever going to release the elective list for this/next semester?). Do you know what is even more awesome? Losing every last bit of that.

An Homage to the Canon

| February 27th, 2013

With the school’s increased emphasis on travel and field trips, we now have more and more opportunity to see the Canon of Architecture in person. So how do we handle this? How do we show our respect and admiration for these works we have studied, memorized, diagramed, emulated, and loved? //

cultivating the imagination

| February 25th, 2013

 

Designers thrive on a rich imagination, so what exactly cultivates our imagination? Has the information age led to the demise of our imagination? We find new ways of thinking and build a bank of images in our heads that we borrow from the internet resulting in pros and cons. //
