Ozan had to return to London at lunchtime, but Dirk and Falco stayed for a whole afternoon of tutorials on structure, giving the students some of the toughest structural questioning they have yet experienced, resulting in many vastly improved schemes by the following Thursday - a legacy of the symposium that we are all grateful for.
I will write about Ivan's visit next time I get time to spend on the blog.

11 Nov '10: We had the first interim design crit, and all nine groups produced a design, in the form of models and some early drawings, and some even included a short video. We had Architects David Leonard and Chris Gaylord as guest critters.

We have nine groups doing towers on the New York site, but we would welcome more schools or more student groups from elsewhere trying this project. It is very challenging, and we have had a month already of site analysis and early design.

01-11-10: It's great to see that the AJ (Architects Journal) have done a feature on Masters courses in Sustainable design, and have given very prominent coverage to our MArch STB course, with a large illustration of one of the Rotterdam projects from last year. It is in the issue of 28.10.10, page 50. There is also a round up of some recent Passivhaus designs in the UK, so altogether this is an issue worth keeping!
Unfortunately for those without the AJ, it is on the website, but behind their subscriber's wall, although I think you can register for free to see these particular pages.
