Registration for Career Exploration is now open!

Architecture is a discipline and a career that requires professional training. High school students considering career options may have had little opportunity to become acquainted with the unique blend of visual orientation, creative process, academic investigation and professional training that forms an architectural education. Career Explorations in Architecture is designed to offer students a short, intensive introduction to architecture to help them make informed decisions about their direction in post-secondary education and beyond.

Students will spend their three weeks in the School of Architecture exploring the ideas, methods, and issues of architecture. Lectures, field trips, discussions, critiques, and other activities during the four-hour daily class session will be supplemented by regular design exercises to be completed outside class time. Students will sample the intensity as well as the subjects of a collegiate architecture curriculum.

Pelican Bomb Reviews the Jack Niven exhibition at TSA

JACK NIVEN
RICHARDSON MEMORIAL HALL
TULANE SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE
OCTOBER 7-NOVEMBER 8, 2013

We make memories every day. Regardless of whether a moment is mundane or significant, it may get filed away for later use. But our filing system is unreliable, our cabinet a little too jumbled. How often do we recall an event, only to be told that’s not how it happened? Bits of memories converge and get stitched together with other vignettes or objects from our lives and even our dreams. Jack Niven’s “Memory Logos” exhibition seems to emerge from this nebulous, disjointed space where recollections gather.

In His Eyes of Sparkling Lustre Have a Magic in Their Beam, a frog is hitching a ride on a fox’s back, his hands clasped together, eyes looking towards the sky as if in prayer or deep thought. In another, a monkey adjusts the feathers on an eagle’s breast with the care of a doting spouse. Niven’s graphite drawings surely recall the naturalistic detail of nineteenth-century science texts, but the animals are personified in subtle, endearing ways more reminiscent of children’s storybooks from the 1950s. Whether these sources are significant to the artist remains unclear, but the convergence of memories is apparent, especially in a work like I Dreamt I Lay Asleep Beneath an Orange Tree When a Bluebird Came and Sang. A moose traverses through water with a squawking bird on his back, the landscape set against a paisley sky that could be borrowed from another mental impression: the fabric of a teacher’s dress or the wallpaper in a kitchen. Everything is faintly recognizable in these peculiar reflections.

First Year Design at Tulane School of Architecture

Dear TSA Community,

On behalf of the entire first year teaching team, I would like to take this opportunity to share with you our studio tumblr site.

This is a photographic record of everything our first years have been up to since August 26. By the time December rolls around, we will have the whole experience archived here.

We have been having a blast up on the fifth floor.

Come on up and see us sometime!

Until then,

ARCH 1011/6011

As an introduction to the basic fundamental methods and principles of architectural design, students are given an immediate experience of the design process, developing their capacity to conceive, manipulate and analyze architectural form and space. An emphasis on verbal skills, and graphic and material techniques for architectural representation, enable students to express and communicate their ideas. The studio develops the students' capacity for critical thinking through constructive evaluation.
