Fall Architecture Thesis Review
On December 8, the Department of Architecture held final thesis reviews for both graduate and undergraduate candidates. Projects were critiqued by architecture faculty as well as invited guests including Gary Bates, Ila Berman, Milton Curry (B.Arch. '88), Jennifer Leung, Laurie Hawkinson, Felipe Gonzalez, Greg Keeffe, Michael Szivos, and Amanda Williams (B.Arch. '97). Projects ranged from aggregating e-waste handling units in Ghana to artifact storage in post-catastrophe Tokyo; from urban scale questions focused on half-empty cities in China to issues of craft in the digital age; and from investigations of the architecture of horror through film to a rethinking the image of the city for contemporary urban contexts.
