The Common First Year (CFY) in the College of Architecture at Georgia Tech is a collective, discipline-bridging exploration of the designed, lived, and built environment. As a GTA for the Lecture component of CFY headed by Professor Sabir Khan, I presented to the 150 or so students my list of the Top Ten Keywords that I thought they should know immediately if they are to consider architecture for their Undergraduate degree. My list includes: Scale, Program, Site, Promenade, Tectonics, Structure, Ornament, Material, Digital Design, and Performance. //

The College of Engineering’s recent push to dedicate more degree focus and curricular options towards presenting engineering students with the opportunity to design is an encouraging step for those of us engineers hoping for a more hands-on and progressive academic experience. //

Before penetrating deep into the heart of the studio culture concerns in the COA, we should look into how the College of Architecture defines studio culture: GA Tech Studio Culture Document By first defining Tech’s publicly defined ideal studio, we can, then, address how it compares to the actual studio culture today.

Chapter 1. The royale with cheese.
Aspartame. When digested this artificial sweetener transforms into aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol. Mysterious names for mysterious substances.
Methanol, a dangerous and volatile substance by its own nature, when metabolized by liver transcends into formaldehyde.
Formaldehyde as embalming agent.
Acrylamide. Another horror story for another day. 82 micrograms preserving.

Design by any other name is still design? Can we find warm homes for design in the sciences and engineering courses at Tech? Are they in hiding there already? Share thoughts. //

Tim Frank’s exhibition at MODA will open on March 27th and run until April 26th. Tim earned his Master’s in Architecture degree at Tech after attending Virginia Tech as an undergraduate. AT Georiga Tech Tim has instructed CFY for six years, while most recently taking on sophomore studio this past school year. He also runs his own firm as well as working for another firm. He is a recent winner of 2009 AIA Atlanta 48-hour competition.

This first Open Forum was Wednesday March 17th 12 [Noon] on the Bridge with surprisingly good attendance- about 10 students and 15 faculty. The discussion hit on many topics including, student collectivity in general, design build, cross disciplinary studies between schools, centennial charette revival, the new body of undergraduates + graduates + and post graduates under the SoA, the search for a new chair, the lecture series next semester, and much more… the first 35 min are captured below for your listening pleasures. We hope to host another, more pointed, discussion again soon. please come and support your college. And / or comment below on what you think we need to be talking about.
