The day has come, it’s FINAL crit day! Presentations will start 10am in the Lecture Hall, please see below for the list. Please ALL students to be there at 9.30am to organise the room and help first students to pin up. We will need a few tables put together for all models to be placed / exhibited for the day and rows of chairs facing the presentation walls.

Remember, this is the final crit where you should present and discuss your whole year’s work under the framework of the given brief. Focus on the main project but also include key drawings and models from term 1 and 2 (definition of land, prototypes, site research and project development). Bring your dossiers and TS documents. Show your videos as part of the presentation (if suitable).

We look forward to the presentations and wish you good luck!

Tutorial Friday 22|05 by tutor

Filed under: 2014-15, programme

Tomorrow the tutorials will have an alternative time slot due to tutor’s attendance to other Intermediate crits. As this tutorial will be our last before the final crit please all students to:

1- Bring a wall layout mock up showing what he/she wants to pin up. We will be at the lecture hall, so there will space. Make sure you include first term, but give priority to the project. Bring it printed or sketched, but please be specific about each drawing and what is the strategy… needless to say avoid being chronological. Include animation first term.

2- If you have not yet give us the printed text, please do so tomorrow (as mentioned on previous 300-500 words, including title and key quote)

3- Bring key drawings printed and red pen for mark ups.

4- General problem – we notice that many of you are NOT drawing on scale recently and when questioned about basic dimensions of your project you cannot respond adequately. That is an automatic failure in any architectural school. Please add scale, graphic scale, north, understand overall dimensions (overall width, length, height) and specific dimensions for ergonomics of human/space/city.

5- Avoid drastic changes to the project in the last stage. One week before the final crit does not give enough time to change the project. If there is only the final project being presented without any process development in a jumpy unexplained style leading to the final proposal there will be a problem on the portfolio.

6- Please be on time, as you can see below it will be a busy day. Organise your tutorial in order to get feedback where you need most.

Notes for Tuesday 19/05 Tutorial by tutor
May 17, 2015, 9:10 am
Filed under: 2014-15

As mentioned before Tuesday tutorial we will do a mock up presentation in order to test your ideas and key drawings. So please everyone to bring:

01- Text (300-500 words) including project title, description and how your project and annual study have addressed the concept of land ownership, and land archetypes (promised or wonderland or cursed land). Aim for a healthy balance between practical project description and concepts. Use one key quote that may inspire or explain the project angle.

02- Bring 5 sheets that explain your project including the current ones you are working. it will be an exercise in tightness rather than rapping, so choose well in accord to the text.

03- We will still comment and mark up drawings, so bring the drawings work in progressed (mentioned on point 02) for red pen tutorial.

More soon!

Continuing our series of poetry here is a poem by Adonis entitled “The New Noah”

                      1
We travel upon the Ark, in mud and rain,
Our oars promises from God.
We live—and the rest of Humanity dies.
We travel upon the waves, fastening
Our lives to the ropes of corpses filling the skies.
But between Heaven and us is an opening,
A porthole for a supplication.
“Why, Lord, have you saved us alone
From among all the people and creatures?
And where are you casting us now?
To your other Land, to our First Home?
Into the leaves of Death, into the wind of Life?
In us, in our arteries, flows a fear of the Sun.
We despair of the Light,
We despair, Lord, of a tomorrow
In which to start Life anew.
If only we were not that seedling of Creation,
Of Earth and its generations,
If only we had remained simple Clay or Ember,
Or something in between,
Then we would not have to see
This World, its Lord, and its Hell, twice over.”
                         2
If time started anew,
and waters submerged the face of life,
and the earth convulsed, and that god
rushed to me, beseeching, “Noah, save the living!”
I would not concern myself with his request.
I would travel upon my ark, removing
clay and pebbles from the eyes of the dead.
I would open the depths of their being to the flood,
and whisper in their veins
that we have returned from the wilderness,
that we have emerged from the cave,
that we have changed the sky of years,
that we sail without giving in to our fears—
that we do not heed the word of that god.
Our appointment is with death.
Our shores are a familiar and pleasing despair,
a gelid sea of iron water that we ford
to its very ends, undeterred,
heedless of that god and his word,
longing for a different, a new, lord.
