For our Professional Practice Class, we had to come up with a plan on how to become successful architecture offices.

However, we all know that we all need a plan to get things done, I feel this exercise did not paint a realistic scenario. Never the less, we made profile portraits for our website to show we are up and coming architectural designers that teach at various institutions in the World and are based in Boston.

When thinking about architecture schools, one may think of the head that runs the department. First there was Yung Ho, now its Nader. Both I’ve come to know because I had to research them to find out if MIT was the right school for me. While their faces are clear to me, Architecture students have long been hidden away in their studio slaving away for their next studio review right behind the most social center of the campus; Steam Cafe. While we associated the school with Nader, I find that there are much to say about how much the school depends on students as well. In a way, architecture school uses student work as much as faculty or chair to draw in future students. In a way, the increasingly business-like structure of university makes me question the roles, priories, and dreams of students and Nader. This project seeks to uncover the struggle between running an architecture school and being in architecture school through portrait style photography.

updated. Portraits of Classmates in 2010. As a premise, I asked them to hold something that would represent themselves and better show the world who they are.

Also I shot this entire set using Kodachrome because Dwayne photo was going to stop doing slides. So no more development of the film…………….
