CMU Students: As most of you know, I have sent out via email the annual summer building study assignment. It’s also posted on the “2nd Year Studio Docs” page of the CMU2013 blog. It’s due first day of classes, Mon. Aug. 24, 2009, in the “Studio Documentation” folder on the server and in hard copy. Results will be better and more profound it you start now, and work iteratively, over time.
Although you should all create your own insights and drawings about these buildings, perhaps the blog can be a good way to share resources, references, and ideas about the buildings, especially for those without access to a good library. Sharing in, and helping create, a rich and wide “discourse” on architecture is key to becoming an architect.
