Next Wednesday evening at the Hilliard museum! 4 UL architecture faculty will talk sustainability in a panel discussion. Mark your calendars!
Wednesday @ 5:30, meet this semester's graduate mentors! These are students who spend a couple of hours each week giving critques and advice to DSGN 101, DSGN 102, and Arch 2nd-4th year students. Oh and FREE SNACKS!
If you are struggling with the recent loss of a friend/member of our SOAD community and need someone to talk to, counselors will be in room 212 at 8am to provide you with support. Whether you were a close friend, a classmate, a teacher, or an acquaintance, the news is difficult to bear. We all react differently to loss, but the UL Counseling and Testing Center has a webpage listing common reactions to trauma (see link in bio) -- if you or a friend are struggling with any of these reactions, please reach out for help. If you can't make it tomorrow morning, remember that the University provides free support resources to students and faculty at the Saucier Wellness Center, just a short walk away from Fletcher Hall.
Architecture students 👀 Michael Riscica of youngarchitect.com will be returning to campus on the evening before the first day of class. If you are curious about the Architect Registration Exam and how to get lisenced, don't miss this talk!
Current SOAD students and faculty: Do you have a personal project you have been working on (or putting off)? Many of us have started creative work, unrelated to our studio projects, that we never quite get around to finishing. We think these efforts deserve celebration. To help us showcase our community's creativity and diverse interests, we are looking for work that is unfinished (#incomplete, #unpolished, #fragmentary...) and in-between (done #betweenclasses, is #betweenstages of completion, crosses #betweendisciplines...) Work in any and all media is encouraged, and no, it does not have to be related to architecture, industrial, or interior design. The exhibition will take place early in the Spring semester. We will provide more submission details soon. Consider what you might want to submit!
Come grab a cup of coffee and join the conversation about how to help design students thrive! Friday, Nov 15 @ 8am in Room 212!
Join us on Friday for what is sure to be a fascinating lecture by Ebrahim Poustinchi @ebrahim_poustinchi His cross-disciplinary, widely-exhibited work crosses the boundaries between architecture, robotics, graphic design, digital fabrication, and more. We hope to see you there! Also, be sure to check out his Instagram account for a sneak peek.
Industrial Design student Paul Little @avaviel will be showing students how to use Autodesk Fusion 360 this Thursday in the crit pit next to second year architecture.
