blue paper

is anyone interested in some kind of collaborative thesis effort, i.e. a so-called "blue paper" group? shoot me an email if you are. likewise, we can survey the board outside the grad office one we've all posted our one page write-up.

Independent study

Independent study-This is an option. Ideally a future thesis chair to run either a 299 or a 298. 299 is solo, 298 is group. There's a little confusion about whether this person can be a lecturer.

Notes From Meeting with Fraker

Minutes from the meeting w/ Harrison Fraker on August 22

We introduced the letter. HF: 'I wish I could have been there.'

Background - HE's always had a concern that
there is no History or Theory underpinnings. He has been concerned and
no one in the arch. dept. has addressed this matter.

Strength of the thesis depends on committee and prep profs.
It is a reality that not all thesis proposals will be great, and not all
great buildings will be great theses.

Will participate in prep/brown bag.
Will give a reading list and latest article.
Will bring in some reviewers and tie it to lecture series.

Thesis - about becoming an individual designer

Ask Mary for funding for publication.
Ask Mary for funding for GSR coordinator.
