The students are currently working hard on Project 1C, for which they have to critically evaluate the M.Arch programme outcomes by analysing these 6 topics: Future of the Profession, Architecture as Making, (Post?)Industrial Ecology, Architecture Urbanism & Ideology, Visual Language and Typology/Spatial Agency.
As you can imagine, with so many topics for discussion, last Friday was pretty intense. All four tutors were there to help the students and each group had a total of 3 1/2 hours of tutorials!! A ton of ideas came up during the day, not only through the conversations with the tutors but also, through the conversations that the groups had in-between the tutorials. Fortunately, the students found this influx of different perspectives more useful than confusing so, when the day ended, everyone was very excited and looking forward to start working on their power point presentations.
With the second year students leaving for Poland next Monday and the need to start working on the urban strategies, everyone is trying to get as much work as possible completed this week. Wish us luck!
