In view of the ongoing #COVID19 pandemic and the partial cancellation of class XII #exams by several Boards across the country, the Ministry of Education on the recommendations of @CouncilofArchi1 has decided to relax the eligibility for admission to B.Arch. Course for 2020-2021.
Now, candidates who have passed the 10+2 scheme of examination with PCM subjects or 10+3 Diploma with Mathematics shall be eligible for admission to the first year of B.Arch. Course for 2020-2021.
The candidates should have qualified an aptitude test in #Architecture, i.e. #NATA or #JEE for admission to the B.Arch. Course. I wish all the best to candidates seeking admission to the Course.

If starting an #architecture firm today, ops stack would be @HubSpot for funnel, @NotionHQ or @coda_hq for wiki, @webflow for website, GSheets, @HyparAEC w/ Rhino for scaled design, Revit for documentation, Bluebeam for QA/QC, Matterport for pre/post 3D capture, @upcodes 1/n
I'd start it with a partner who would focus on design while I focused on sales, marketing, and ops. Our first immediate remote hires would be a version of an SDR / biz dev with base + commission and an entrepreneurial designer who wants project ownership & above market comp. 2/n
We'd focus on two sectors max based off of current networks, map out the value chain of those sectors & identify service gaps with a high signal for becoming products. Some competitive research would determine positioning & discovery calls would determine market / service fit 3/n

The #AcropolisMuseum in #Athens is a striking museum completed in 2009. Designed by the renown architect Bernard #Tschumi the museum was built to be in harmony with the Sacred Rock and the #Parthenon itself. #Museum #architecture #MuseumsUnlocked @profdanhicks @cultureGR 1/4
Tschumi and his Greek collaborator, Michael Fotiadis, came up with a design based on movement and light, embodying an ethos that this museum needs to consider its role both as a repository for its collections and as an influential context for the Classical art of its time. 2/4
The essence of the architects' brief was to construct a museum that would establish a unique visual experience with the #Parthenon, not as destination museum, but in a sensual dialogue between the #ParthenonSculptures and the Parthenon itself that would reach across centuries 3/4

Here’s what I learned about architecture school and practice in my latest podcast with Zach (@cantradionalist): (0/6)
1. @wrathofgnon has likely turned more people in favour of traditional architecture with twitter than anything else today.

Except for, perhaps, the ugly buildings themselves.

2. The culture wars have reached architecture schools too. “Critical” architecture, just like Critical _________ Studies, seeks to subvert and revolutionize, not improve and support. (see @ConceptualJames for more)

Alright, quick thread since I'd rather write a long-form article at some point when I can get the will and mental space to do so, but let's talk about Design Review in Seattle:


#housing #seattle #urbanism #design #architecture
Today, city council passed an emergency resolution tied to Design Review and COVID. The current system requires most developments in the city to have public meetings. Given that option is currently impossible, the system has been edited (temporarily)

Projects that normally have to go through full design review will go through administrative design review, and affordable (aka publicly subsidized) housing projects will be exempt from the process. This will be for six months, or until online meetings are able to be held...

Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]
