Happenings around the School

The Great Space is undergoing its fall transformation as the home of the Comprehensive Studio models.

The Comprehensive Studio, ARCH 600, a graduate level design studio, has been working with structural mechanical and lighting consultants to design a Library.  Now, the time has come to build the large scale model, at 1/2″ = 1′-0. Check out more pictures at the School’s Flickr page.

Meanwhile, the ARCH 412 students were asked to demonstrate an understanding of structures and/or structural principles by means other than their homework and class quizzes.  The students designed and fabricated arches, plaster domes, and several versions of a model shelf for the School’s mezzanine wall.

The School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation has a Flickr account with pictures from the various programs.  Most recently, we have documented activities in the studio sequence of the Architecture program.
