Photo from Chicago's famous architectural boat tour from the summer of 2017. This summer will end with me having taken the tour a total of 6 times!

Back to Blacksburg

I am finally back in Blacksburg and beginning my third year. I am especially excited for this year because my classes will focus on the details of the buildings I am designing, code requirements, and building assembly systems.

This year I am also beginning my Building Construction Minor. I am very interested to see what kinds of things I will learn that will begin to inform my design decisions. Because of what I have been learning in these classes I have developed a new interest in researching the different way in which the architect is involved with, and responsible for, the construction process. I will be developing these ideas in a series of weekly blog posts.

Stay tuned for more!
