The 60th anniversary of the East Architecture Building brings about many changes within the college. I had the privilege to sit down with Dean Alan Balfour, who will be stepping down as Dean and stepping up as professor and scholar within the College, to discuss these changes and the legacy he is leaving behind.

We are the last class to experience the Paris Program!?! As a senior architecture student participating in the Paris Program, I never imagined I’d have to think about, let alone put such a thought into writing. //

On thursday, a group of students from the SoA and AIAS visited two female run firms, SBS [Stanley Beaman Sears] and RWH [Richard Wittschiebe Hand]. As a female student in architecture school, it was refreshing to see female architectural leadership.

The School of Architecture needs more women faculty. Compared to the rest of the Accredited Colleges of Architecture and to US Universities in general the SOA has the lowest female faculty figures. //

It is interesting, but not surprising, that the COA faculty gender figures track those for profession.
COA [18% women] faculty employment is now less than Tech’s [21% women]. COA [44% women] student enrollment is more balanced than the rest of the Tech’s [29% women]. //

The second candidate present to the students, Lynnette Widder brings some exceptional experience as head of Architecture at RISD, and has a very pragmatic wait-and-see mentality about her vision for the future of the architecture program. But is this a comforting sign that she wishes to get a feel for what exists and expound on it, or is it a disconcerting lack of vision? //

The first candidate to present to the school was Ingalill Wahlroos-Ritter, whose innovative, creative, and collaborative approach is a breath of fresh air, but she might be biting off more than she can chew. //

GrayMatter(s) sits down with Doug Allen to talk about the future of the COA, what the change to schools will bring, and what this means to students in general. Professor Allen also speaks on how he came to Tech, and a brief history lesson on how the College developed into what it is today.

What is the future of design at Georgia Tech?
I think the future of our college lies in taking a more holistic view of design, and its ramifications. Technology has allowed us the ability to communicate complex ideas quickly and easily. This is in part the reason, why there is such a strong (and healthy) emphasis placed on multi-disciplinary study. But a holistic approach goes beyond sustainability, and beyond changing the working method. //
