Hi HINGE folk!

I hope this post finds you well in your respective corners of the world.

As we’re now dispersed, embarking on our own adventures in architecture, I’d love to revive this blog as a platform to share current interests and projects.

I’m meeting with people in my current community and talking about similar issues that the HINGE group discussed, namely public interest design. I’d like to invite them to use this platform too, as it’s already set up and has a nice history of good information. Also, if you have friends you’d like to invite to post to the blog, send me their email addresses and I’ll add them as authors.

cheers!

Heather

do GOOD . . .

Hi all,

Had a great chat with Becca and got very excited about the opportunities within architecture that are not slogging through traditional firms upon graduation.  Soo I started my own GOOD organizations resource list of place/people/organizations that I find inspiring and potential opportunities for future work.  Let’s start a comprehensive list!  A great way to connect to people and places starts with us!

Anyone interested in a coffee gathering one morning, or beer one friday evening?

(we’re all busy but I’d love to talk about the future and all the exciting possibilities!)

If interested comment back and we’ll figure out a time, day, place . .

take a 5 minute break

For my friends, in and out of school:

After reading this, consider the idea of getting meetings going again. Informal… food included… outside of Lawrence. Let’s not lose sight of what we care about in our final months in school together. Thoughts?

A Corbu-inspired tower in a Paris suburb is razed, to be replaced with “cluster” approach to “housing the poor”.
