Do you like this story?
For our architecture fans...
Today, while I was eating my lunch in front of the TV, I stumbled upon a new television series/reality show called Architecture School. I only caught the last half of what turned out to be episode 2, on the Sundance Channel, and instantly became intrigued. After all, what I caught was an architecture school critique. Instantly, I was reminded of past art school critiques that I now miss. It was nice to get an insider view of what young architects and their professors discuss when it comes to design, innovation and ego. Interested in seeing more, I hopped on line to see if I could catch the episodes in some form of streaming video. Well, you can. You can catch the first episode of Architecture School (which I have since watched) here. At the time of this posting you can only catch the first episode at that link but I expect you will catch subsequent episodes shortly after their initial air date. Since episode 2 just aired today, I would assume it will be available within a couple days.
From their Sundance Channel site page:
Focusing on an innovative studio program at Tulane University, this six-part documentary series follows a group of fourth- and fifth-year architecture students as they design and build a single-family house in a low-income neighborhood of New Orleans devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
