      Hi Folks.
      You are invited to participate as a member of any of the following juries:
      ARCH 21, Basic Design (9 registered students, 7 likely to present)
      Final Critique: Wednesday, 7 Decemeber 2005 @ 8:10 - 11:00 AM in Batmale 245
      Again, we are exploring the topic of body and soul. The final project is a construction that engages a portion of each student's body and reveals something about their body and soul in an expressive and metaphorical manner. As an introduction to the next studio, in which architectonic notions are explored, our students are grappling with the dualities of structural and non-structural qualities, the opportunities presented by the materials selected, and the aesthetic and engineering aspects of connections. All this is to come together in a developed hierarchical design language that is readable by most. Students are learning how to interject/appropriate constraints not associated with the initial problem definition, as submitted by me. In this way, they can reframe the problem and set directions for their solution in which meaning deepens through an evolution of design iterations. Problem definition, solution, and narrative evolve through a dynamic and creative process.
      ARCH 24, Design Studio (18 registered students, all are expected to present)
      Final Critique in Batmale 246 over two days, 9 students each in 15 minute time slots - 1st session: Wednesday, 7 Dec. 2005 @ 12:10 - 3:00 pm; 2nd session: Monday, 12 Dec. 2005 @ 12:10 - 3:00 pm
      This semester's project is a community center and gateway to CCSF on the site where the present Bookstore Annex is situated. Students are asked to respond to a simple program of activity areas and site context. There model and drawings will represent their relational investigations of structure and skin; inside and outside; private and public; pathway and nodes; plan configuration to shape of space...all in the service of place making, in which the parts and the whole support a diverse and appropriate set of experiences for the proposed inhabitants. Students are grappling with the notion of concept as the driving force behind their design. The challenge is to incorporate aspects of their abstract design language developed in non-contextual constructions into their architecture-like solution and not defaulting into stereotypes associated with the built environment. Many students are struggling with developing their abilities to identify what is essential in place-making.
      DSGN 110, Rapid Visualization (13 students, most likely to present)
      Final Critique on Thursday, 8 December 2005 in Batmale 245 @ 12:10 - 3:00 pm, 10 minutes per student for both presentation and critique
      Students will present multiple boards that present their design solutions to a diverse set of topics, based on their interests and of their choice. Projects include developing storyboards for a music video, website, illustrated novel; developing an assortment of contraptions ranging from an automatic dog feeder, a hands-free telephone for the car, to a survivalist's water extractor; and character and set development to be used in some form of storytelling.  
      You may participate in as many of these events as you like. Please let me know which sessions you select. Looking forward to a lively and provocative set of exchanges!
