First day of the new semester. Prepared the syllabus for the International Program Design Studio 2 I am coordinating. Despite everyone’s doubt, I’m still pushing the agenda to use flooding (as a recent & historical phenomena) to enter these second-year students’ consciousness in discussing urban dwelling.
Other agenda will be to properly introduce them to architectural typology design method. Not just copying what they’ve been seeing in design blogs ignorantly, but copying critically by celebrating uncreativity, to steal the words of UbuWeb’s Kenneth Goldsmith.
On the other hand, things with Karbon is looking grim. I’ll update when the time is right, now it is still too uncertain. It’s too soon to actually dwell on it. I’m waiting to see how things will unfold.
