Spring Semester 2010

Wondering what people have been up to this past semester?

Students from both the architecture and landscape architecture programs participated in programs in Charleston, Genoa, Barcelona, and Turkey!  In the fall, students will be returning to Clemson to implement their new knowledge and younger students will be embarking on these journeys for the first time! Here's a glimpse of the groups in their homes away from Clemson:

Maymester students in Turkey...

Spring semester Genoa students visiting Rome...

This is what happens when you study abroad in Barcelona...

And for the Charleston students, I don't think they had time to stop and take a picture...

Freedom By Design

If you haven't heard already, there will be a Freedom By Design chapter starting at Clemson this semester!  It is a great way to get involved in architecture outside of studio!

What FBD is all about:
  Take studio to the people who really need it. Improving the safety, dignity, and comfort of our neighbors. Resolve accessibility issues while simultaneously being provided with the real world experience of working with a client, with mentorship from a local architect and constructor, and an understanding of the practical impact of architecture and design.
