In our latest student story, Isabella Noet (of the BDA program) reflects on a recent BDA Workshop entitled "Design Foundations" and its importance in preparing students for the BDA curriculum.
Jurors Marta Snow (SALA Architects), Mark Stankey (plaad inc.) and Natalya Egon (Snow Kreilich Architects) said "it was clear in the way that the program related to the site was the defining reason for the building to be in that location." they also recognized "that the program provided a distinct means for experiencing that relationship."
Awarded annually the Sketchbook Award is juried by Studio 01 faculty members: Jody McGuire, Kris Mun and Bob Ganser. "The jury was impressed by Dennis' commitment to 3D perspective sketching throughout the sketchbook. It is unusual to see so many 3D sketches. Dennis' investment in 3D drawing will be a big help as he enters the profession."
Supported by the Bachelor of Architecture Class of 1967 "...the Class of 1967 hopes to renew an interest in the timeless nature of the sketchbook as witnessed in rigourous curricula from the Beaux Arts to today."
From March 23-24, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia, constituents from across the design continuum gather to respond to questions such as: Why is functional collaboration more the exception than the rule when conceiving, designing, and building a project?
