  • (Small) Theses? | Javier Arbona
    semester at Cornell s architecture department where I co taught an MArch I second year studio and a nifty little seminar on what I like to talk about as everyday architectures or the in between states where design comes into play materially as part of a larger political and social millieu Anyway if I can get around to it I might post a syllabus Finishing a semester usually means doing the usual grading madness and returning books but for me it also means once again packing up my belongings and sending em off to California where they will await their owner s return in August Tomorrow morning I ll jump on a bus to NYC where more craziness awaits Lots and lots of people to see and shows to catch Columbia architecture show Ernesto Neto s Armory installation ICFF related stuff 49 cities at Storefront Dwell party Pin Up It might be interesting to see how many things I can do in two days But lately I ve been pondering many issues related to the dreaded architecture thesis Oh yes That one The so called capstone to design where you prove you ve made your bones This past semester was an intriguing one being my first seeing thesis reviews at Cornell from the other side of the range that is thank god It was mighty interesting and saw some good projects Others mmm not so good perhaps though usually some salvageable ideas Well here is an image from one of the better ones just cus this student has posted it online and others haven t that I know of I wasn t on this review but got to see the project after This was in intriguing proposal to design the ruination and occupation of the decaying space of a post military landscape surely a topic close to my heart By Garyhe33 click image for more Surely this student sticks to some Platonic forms in the landscape and perhaps consciously avoids prevalent trends in architecture good for him Aside from the issue of vocabulary it was also speculative and detailed at various scales which was refreshing to see Click the image for more But what worries me now is not so much an issue like the all too common incompleteness that made many potentially good projects not so good in my opinion For instance if a student decides to design a building then there s gotta be some consistency from drawings to models and on to renderings Perforations should be consistent throughout not change in relative size from one mode of representation to the next to name just one basic issue And it s galling what some get away with But that happens every year What s more serious is that I think we ve gotten to a point and Cornell is not the only one where students have no position on what thesis itself can be Maybe I am being romantic but I think students should be able to explain

  • thesis | Javier Arbona
    to the Bezoar for lots of interesting stuff For the curious things have been a little slow around here while I have been developing an article for an upcoming number of Architectural Design guest edited by David Gissen Spring 2010 issue Architectural Design Territory Architecture Beyond Environment The article is about the work of François Roche R Sie n and broadly about eco materialism in architecture as an alternative to sustainability Just to print a little teaser one of the early paragraphs reads as follows note that this might change throughout the editing process François Roche s work fits albeit uneasily into the production of a milieu of artists and architects several featured in this number united by an inquiry into the contradictions of modern nature a partly human artifice upon which we materially depend extending our being and life but also foreign and strange not to mention privatized in myriad forms 2 Water systems are the classic example of this The creations of Roche along with Stéphanie Lavaux and various other design partners over the years most recently operating under the R Sie n monicker seesaw between attempts at overcoming alienation the condition of being expropriated from our own means of laboring in and with the earth and also heightening it Needless to say I m excited for this article because it touches upon a lot of subjects I have been interested in the recent past some of which begin to be addressed in this older post In addition I have been in the process of getting a draft of my dissertation prospectus ready Yes For the heck of it I ll share an intro paragraph here Again the caveat applies that this is an early draft and could change after my committee takes a whack at it In this nutgraph I am referring to California cities and their proposed or established post military parks In this project I propose that a number of these neo Picturesque parks overlaid onto former military spaces create a mutually supporting geography of private economic gain and imperial power These parks seductively employ symbolic references to military heroism in a purportedly public landscape situating memories of by gone place and faux montages of Arcadian nature This new geography is opportune and opportunistic The zones I want to study are cleavages where visitors might get the thrill of stumbling upon something that they interpret they weren t supposed to see Cold War secrets lost amidst a ruinous landscape for example and yet it was planted there for them all along How ideological landscape features and visitors come to find one another while boosting private investment will make up the substance of this study Meanwhile other things are in store like a book review for Historical Geography I am also beginning to prepare a summer yeah summer course for 2010 provisionally titled Cities for Sale Global Real Estate and Urban Politics with apologies to Chester Hartman for cribbing from his book City for Sale Needless to say the months ahead look pretty busy Stay tuned for new material Just add the RSS feed to your reader New updates will also be announced via Twitter just ask to follow and I ll unlock it for you if you re not a marketing bot and of course Bezoar For now I ll leave you with something else from the Bezoar collection an index of national pride Propagate Click to email Opens in new window

comment Small Theses As I write this post I m frazzled and in a multitask fog But there are so many exciting things coming across my screen that I thought I had to share and at the very least register before I lose track I started with the title theses because most of these loosely related items hinge upon some kind of thesis in one way or another But the title is really just suggestive The state of craziness right now has to do with the fact that I have just finished an intense semester at Cornell s architecture department where I co taught an MArch I second year studio and a nifty little seminar on what I like to talk about as everyday architectures or the in between states where design comes into play materially as part of a larger political and social millieu Anyway if I can get around to it I might post a syllabus Finishing a semester usually means doing the usual grading madness and returning books but for me it also means once again packing up my belongings and sending em off to California where they will await their owner s return in August Tomorrow morning I ll jump on a bus to NYC where more craziness awaits Lots and lots of people to see and shows to catch Columbia architecture show Ernesto Neto s Armory installation ICFF related stuff 49 cities at Storefront Dwell party Pin Up It might be interesting to see how many things I can do in two days But lately I ve been pondering many issues related to the dreaded architecture thesis Oh yes That one The so called capstone to design where you prove you ve made your bones This past semester was an intriguing one being my first seeing thesis reviews at Cornell from the other side of the range that is thank god It was mighty interesting and saw some good projects Others mmm not so good perhaps though usually some salvageable ideas Well here is an image from one of the better ones just cus this student has
