Rural studio originally created by sam mockbee, former proffeso at auburn university, has been a hot topic for a few years now. It is a new way of teaching design studio in architecture schools that focuses ona design/build curriculum. It engage the students socially in the contex with which they will be designing while subiminally enstilling Sambo's idea of the citizen architect in each and every commnity. Due to the fact that most rural studio projects take place in poor unkept neighborhoods, many of the studio's have to fundraise and seek funds from both the university board and ultimately the government. Nonetheless, I find that in the end, rural studio and its various projects tend to benefit not only the students, but the community with wich ultimately derserves funding. the main purpose of rural studio is to raise up a generation of citizen architects. According to Sambo and a few other citizen architects, architects of today are not honest. They dont adress the actual problems and factual issues that exist within communities. Design Studio courses today tend to teach theortical projects that work in theory but arent actually heavily based on reality. "The world isnt going to look like Dubai..." yet studio continues to teach as if it is rather than focus on how to design for communites. THe citizen architect is one who designs in such a way that takes the social implications of their design into account. Often it is beleived that being a citizen architect is about…
In a democracy the quintessential citizen performs responsibilities and receives rights not offered in other forms of government. Rights given to citizens can be exercised in steps. When participating in a democracy, you have to the right to voice opinions and become a catalyst for any necessary change in the country. Citizenry is in fact the active participation of the people, as citizens, in politics and civic life.
The first step to exercising citizenship in a democracy is becoming educated…
teaching of the theory of intelligent Design in public schools. The problem is there are not enough textbooks and the ones that are on hand are outdated. In hope that you will approve my proposal and get the funding to order up to date text books and enough in order to teach intelligent Design in public schools in the next six months. Ordering new books will enable schools to have enough for every student to learn the theory of intelligent Design.

Visual Design Elements
Six integral components used in the creation of a design:
Vertical- Represents dignity, formality, stability, and strength
Horizontal- Represents calm, peace, and relaxation
Diagonal- Represents action, activity, and excitement, and movement
Curved- Represents freedom, the natural, having the appearance of softness, and creates a soothing feeling or mood
Color has an immediate and profound effect on a design
Warm colors- reds, oranges…
That argument didn't fly.
Defeated, Jones resolved to improve on what he dubbed his "Las Vegas approach" to investing in design, "where you're basically asking people to roll the dice and hope for the best." As a first step, he surveyed 15 "design-centric" companies, including BMW, Nike, and Nokia. To his surprise, few had a system for forecasting return on design. Most simply based future investments on past performance. "No one," Jones says, "had really figured this stuff out."
workers building and working, architects telling where to put the flooring, the walls, and how the rooms should or shouldn’t look. I was amazed at how much work was being done today. I went up to one of the architects and showed him my sketches.
“Here are my plans for the next house.” I plainly stated.
Without looking at my sketches, he says “What are you doing here? You have no business here as a girl.”
Knowing there was no point in fighting with the architect, I left. When I walked through…
Architects, are they important
Architects are designers, Blueprinters, Creators, these are names describing a Architects role. More specifically Architects are a person trained to plan, design and oversee construction of a building or other things. So now that you know what they are, why do we even have them? Well in my opinion if we did not have Architects buildings would be crumbling, bridges contorting, and mega structures of the world falling to the ground all because a person is not properly…

Citizen Hearst: A Comparison of William Randolph Hearst and Citizen Kane

Along with the innovative camerawork and advanced cinematic techniques that made Citizen Kane a success, Welles also allowed for viewers to connect with his film by providing them with a real life example of the main character. Citizen Kane owned a massive estate called Xanadu that was based upon Hearst's San Simeon. Kane and Hearst were also…
A Comparative Study Between The Practices Of Interior Design And Architecture And A Discourse On The Professionalization Of Interior Design
Interior Design and Architecture
Interior Design is considered a generally young profession. Throughout history, the differences between architects, builders, designers and other professionals involved in building a structure has been decidedly blurred and drawing the line between all the disciplines involved has been a rather recent occurrence.
