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. //

| February 1st, 2013

The final semester represents a shift, a prequel to the transitory, inevitable jump to ‘the real world.’ A chance to look back and look forward. On my education and the field as a whole.

There is something inherently beautiful in observing traces of creation.  But where does the mortal, human designer fit into this grander scheme?

The Chinese architectural ‘Old School’ started before any school of architecture was physically built. It is not only an architectural pedagogy, but also a method to sustain buildings.
