I just got this in my Facebook Inbox from Matthem Fochs of the American Institute of Architecture Students group. (Are you a member?)
In recognition of Architecture Week 2010, the American Institute of Architecture Students is proud to present a collection of work, art and designs from emerging professionals all across North America. All of the displays will be works completed by individuals who are along the path to becoming licensed in the field of architecture but have not yet gained their license. What better way to celebrate Architecture Week 2010 than by inviting the next generation of architects and designers to show off their ideas and designs? Displays will include completed work from students in the AIAS Freedom by Design™ Program, AIAS Design Competitions, ACSA Design Competitions, Fall 2009 and Spring 2010 student work from a collection of architecture schools, as well as work from recent graduates that are well on their way to becoming architects. Along with the submitted designs there will be informational boards talking about the profession and the many paths emerging professionals can take after graduating. The AIAS hopes that the exhibit will not only promote the great work of the next generation of architects but also inspire professionals to mentor and engage the many brilliant and motivated emerging professionals across the country.
To learn more about the exhibit or to submit your work to be displayed, visit http://www.aias.org/news_detail.php?nid=327.
I want to hold an event for Emerging Amateurs – regular people who have just learned how to build their own house with their own hands. Have you done this? Send me pictures. Tell me about yourself. I’ll feature you here.Send Feedback | Permalink

I am starting a new kind of architecture school. Unlike most architecture schools, you wouldn't have to submit GRE scores or good grades or letters of recommendation. You wouldn't have to put the rest of your life on hold for 3 to 5 years. You wouldn't have to accrue tens of thousands of dollars in debt. At my architecture school, anyone could come for a few weeks and learn how to build a house with their own two hands. My teachers would take skills and concepts from some of these other workshops I've listed above... except classes would be held year-round to make it easy to fit into your schedule. I would have a number of different campuses around the country that would teach building designs appropriate to the local climate. And I need your help. Can you donate land for a campus? Can you dotate books for a library? Can you teach a workshop? Can you provide start-up capital? Let me know.
